Vernon Hillbillies are so disgusting. The only town I know of that still proudly flies the rebel flag. I am so sorry we brought our children up in such a heathen environment. Please know that the south lost the war and it's time to get with the times. The Republican mentality up here disgusts me. The people in this town are in no position whatsover to be Republican. Alot of them are using the systems and resources that the Democrats continue to fight for. What a joke! They need to get lives and stop terroizing people. This poor man has been sentenced and punished. Put away the sheets and the nooses you rebel hillbilly white trash!!

I may have posted this before, sorry. But I have been following this and the poster named "a real person" is none other than Brian Cummins. How does someone know that he raised "$50,000" for charity, or how much he (actually) gave to the church? Or that he (actually) took only $5000? He's a common thief disguised as a "do-gooder". And many people are aware of this...

Stop complaining... and move. You're wasting everyone's time, and no one wants you here. Why are you taking the time to trash the town you live in, no one forced you to live here. Grow up.

Please get your facts straight.
I know the teacher personally and I know the two families that own the store personally. In fact, because of my relationship with the teacher, in the beginning, I thought that the accusations must be wrong. However, after seeing the mountain of evidence and the video, you can only come to one conclusion.
You can get the facts from the Vernon Police arrest records, Sussex County court documents and/or the newspaper articles (that get their information from the court documents.)
FACT : The teacher had the opportunity to take his argument to court and a jury of his peers to defend his good name and fight the evidence. But, instead, he chose to plead guilty to 3rd Degree Theft.
If he was innocent why didn’t he fight the charges?
FACT: He did not steal just one time. This was an everyday occurence that took place over 195 different days. It was not a single act of desperation, it was a multi-year crime spree. A habit if you will.
He only stopped because he got caught, not because he had a change in heart.
FACT: He did not just steal $5,000.00. It was shown in great detail that he stole $37,820.97.
FACT: He is not “Robin Hood”. He did not give the stolen money to the Church (as if that would be OK). He told the police during his arrest interview that he used the money for his kids’ snow-board equipment and some family vacation expenses.
As for his charity work. It is always easy to be charitable with other people’s money.
FACT: He stole this money from his friends. He used their long-standing friendship to gain their trust and then pick their pockets.
DESPICABLE!
FACT: The families that own the store are very good people. They built a local business, they hire local people and they continually give back to the community without calling notice to themselves.
You should perhaps go talk to them and see how this thief’s actions have profoundly affected their lives.
FACT: He was sentenced to 3 years probation, ordered to take part in the Sheriff’s labor program and ordered to repay the money that he stole. He resigned from his teaching position before he was sentenced so that he could keep his pension. Because he is a convicted felon, he can no longer teach. He was ordered to pay some fines and small court expenses.
Whether or not you believe his sentence was too light or too strong. The fact is, that he is serving out his debt to society. I hope that people can have forgiveness in their hearts. But that does not mean that they should forget. He should not get a free-pass. He brought this situation on by himself. Every time he made the choice to stick his hand in the register and steal from his friends he chose to make the wrong decision, over and over and over and over again.
People have the right to voice their opinion and my only hope is that they get the facts right.
Otherwise you just look ignorant.
I have a much more personal relationship with him go ahead and actually talk to him look at the person and not the crime and to everyone else look at the person you ignorant fucks how's about we dig the skeletons in your closets im guessing were going to find some interesting stuff! Before you pass judgement with your big internet mouths look at yourself id be scared

ok I have to write this after reading everyone's words. It is obvious who grew up there
and who hadn't. Take a look.

dam teacher ? No it's damn teacher

Are hearts go out ?? No it's our hearts go out.

sheesh Brian could have taught you better!

To answer why it's so interesting how supportive we all are
Brian is one of us! He has lived there and taught there many, many years.
Brian is a fantastic teacher!

While I can appreciate this teachers contributions, and can feel for a family that is in crisis, this is a man who stole 30k from our community. If someone reached in your account and took 30k, or stole 30k from your business, I am sure all the understanding would not be present. He stole 30k from the taxpayers of Vernon, period. This now evidences a lack of judgement, one that makes his future contributions to our children suspect. If we fail to hold him accountable, what are we teaching our kids? haven't we seen this with our town's government again and again, no accountability? Sympathetic as we all may be, we need to hold people accountable...

I know its been a few years since Brian Cummings felon conviction, but I feel sick, Brian is retired at pension of over 80.000 a year, he left his family after putting them through a humiliating event for long time girl friend, a fellow teacher, who he was with during the time he was stealing, he ruined the lives of his wife, children, and his current girl friends family. There is a lot going on in Vernon High, it is not teaching!!!!!!!

Brian Cummins has always fooled people into thinking he is this sweet, generous, caring, person who does only good,boy does he has everyone fooled.I think he should of gone to jail for his crime. Now he leaves his wife and home for another woman boy what a loser. Brian left his first wife for Mary,now leaves Mary for another woman. All I can say with all his lying,stealing,cheating he will get his one day and that day will be standing in front of God on judgement day hope you enjoy the hot tempertures Brian were your going.

Something I learned long ago..."If they cheat on her with you, they will cheat on you with someone else"...Simple to remember by many times forgotten. What this man did years go has no business being brought up at this time...leave it be and move on. It's long been over and shouldn't be a thought anymore.
