All I know is that I am a former student and Coach Martin tried to lure me in when I was senior in high school. I, as a student, had the sense to know it was wrong and turned down his advances. That was over 15 years ago. Now that this case has come to light it makes me wonder how many young girls he has approached.
I am sure you are just one of many and thank you for being a lady at the time and using good judgment. Some teachers and students morals are tested everyday, however it is there families who suffer the most. That is whenever they do actually engage in the improper conduct.

You can send them to college, teach them how to teach, give them a certificate and a classroom - the only problem is - they are all recruited from the human race.

What Martin did was wrong, and he has already paid a steep price for his moral mistake (job, family, disgrace in his community). He still faces the price he will pay for committing a crime when his case comes to court.

No one who has posted on this topic is named Jesus, so no one is perfect. Granted, on a scale of 1 to 10, he didn't tell a white lie or steal a piece of meat to feed his family. However, if he has made his peace with God, and if he is punished by human law, then what more do you want?

FYI - He didn't marry the hot chick - you have him confused with the former soccer coach, Coach Bryant.

They are both junk iron and a disgrace to our children and society, as well as there families. Neither of them should be referred too as Coaches, Teachers etc. Only honorable people who do the real job intended should have those distinct names bestowed upon them. Donnie Martin and Martin Bryant both came from old money in Sulphur Springs, so it won't surprise me if each of them only got a slap on the wrist. Martin Bryant's Dad & Mom were both great teacher's and Coach and was looked upon with great respect, however their names are now tarnished because of this little creep of a son they raised. Donnie Martin's Dad would have beaten his butt for doing what he did as he was also an honorable man and worked hard all his life. I'm sorry I never knew Donnie's mom so I can't speak about her and will not.

Hi concerned. I've been doing some fact checking and have determined that there is no old money in Sulphur Springs. What you are equating with people that have old money is really just people that have regular jobs. Thanks.

There are no old money families in SS. There may be well to do families, but no old money like the Vanderbilts or that ilk. If you've got names, put them out there.

Bonham,Price,Orwosky,Tate,Kelt y,Deaton,Johnson,Jordan,Seller s,Tutt, and that's just a few of the oldest money names in Hopkins County and a very few. You still don't get the term old money and perhaps you never will.

Are you kidding????? Tutt? The Tutts are NOT "old money". He is a c**** m******* who got into the building business and got rich by accident. He used to live on Sunset Street, a dump, not so long ago. I don't know that he is welcome in polite society. Mary Bonham was a hairdresser not so long ago. Orwosky's own a funeral home. They are working people. Price's have always worked for their money. Kelty? WTF? Deaton? The barber? Johnson? The lawyer? Sellers work for their money. I don't know the Jordans. These do not qualify as old money and yes I do know what old money is. These peeps are plain old middle class and do not come from a long line of inherited wealth. That's what old money is.

The dobsons actually do qualify as old money in a sense. Johnny Dobson married Martha mcfatridge. Martha was the daughter of the a self made wealthy family. They made their fortune by hard work as the owners of Carls tasty sausage. Martha and Johnny were school teachers because they loved the profession. They believed in making a better world. That of course was when you could witness the gospel to young students without being fired. They were old money but certainly did not flaunt it. That is why God continually blessed them.

Yes, I know the Dobson family. That is not old money. They were/are regular middle class people and not wealthy. They didn't live any better than anyone else.

Fact Checker you are a hopeless case and no need to explain to you any further. One thing though it's been 40 years since Mary Bonham cut hair. She might hire you to pull weeds at her multi million dollar home. The rest of the people I spoke of if you don't know them then your to young or not from Sulphur Springs, or maybe just to poor too be in their circle.

Here are the facts: I am from SS and went to school and/or church with most of the people on your "old money" list. Didn't go to school or church with Mary Bonham or the Johnsons, but I know all the other families. Well-to-do....yes...some are. Old money....forget it.

Bonham,Price,Orwosky,Tate,Kelt y,Deaton,Johnson,Jordan,Seller s,Tutt. I went to school with some of them, they were well off but not old $$$. Bonham is not old money nor is the other names. JB Weld was not invented until 1968. That is not old. Mrs. Riley Lindley was the pioneer mother of Hopkins County. Sulphur Springs Gazette, Fri., Dec. 17, 1915 Cumby Rustler reported she was a member of one of the wealthiest families in Hopkins County. That's old $$$

Whatever happened to this case ? Did it get swept under the rug before the new D.A. & Judge got sworn in and could handle it. I hope not because Will Ramsay and Judge Northcutt will hand down swift punishment, because they don't care who the person is or what family they are from. In my opinion an example will be made in this case to show other teachers, that this conduct will not be tolerated. Also the girl was a consenting adult and I believe she should be charged as well. She would be charged an adult if she was caught with drugs,alcohol,firearms,or committed any other crime at school. The law needs to be changed for students that are not minors and consent to this kind of conduct. Donnie Martin is very wrong for his part and should be punished, however young girls and boy's have a way of luring the teacher's into bed. Before any of you jump to conclusions if he (Donnie) was a faithful man to his wife no amount of luring or seductive taunts could sway him. This still sends a message to these young girl's and boy's of age that hey we can get what we want and there is no consequences for us. They have the power of seductive behavior to wreck marriages,careers,families and their own lives as well. Let's send a firm message to teachers and students alike, that this kind of conduct will not be tolerated in our schools by either party involved. I know what coming again "the teacher is suppose to hold themselves to a higher standard and be a mentor". Well okay so it's quite alright for our daughter's or son's to go around acting like whore's or whore mungers ? I don't think so and I don't think any of you can honestly say you would be a proud parent of this behavior.
