You keep saying drugs. Did he fell a drug test as a teacher? I say by your actions I say you do receive some benefit from of state assisted program. I say you voted for Kent Williams also.

Wow you found a typo!!!!!Still on the soap box talking a lot of crap about someone because you have nothing better in your life. Sounds like from some earlier posts has your beloved daughter getting a mouth full/handful of the football team. I think you should devote some of your free time to show your her what a lady really is since you are the one judging. You do sound like those Kent Williams supporters. I am sorry you have never been anything in life to speak of but to judge someone on their past is frankly beneath me. What I am saying, you are beneath me. You are puritanic. Get back into your little shell, watch mtv raps, and learn some new drug before you post again.

anothermom: Numerous times people questioned this guy's hiring because of his prior record and the way he acted around kids.

Where is that coming from? No official questioning of his hiring ever came before this. Only if by people you're talking about random groupings of parents. Background checks weren't even required till the '07 school year. His violations were prior to that. Personally I think his past record has nothing to do with his current allegations.

Yes I agree that people can change. But on the other hand people who stalk children and have had a number of complaints against them will not change. They will always be sex offenders. My thought is that he should be listed as such on the sex offender list.
I have done a lot of things in my past that I amm not pleased with,but nothing so bad as stalking little girls. That is such a sick person.
I think also that like anothermom said why doesn't the school board check deep enough in teachers backgrounds. Such a waste.
He wasn't charged with stalking. He wasn't formally charged with anything.

I think his past record HAS everything to do with the situation he is in now. Just goes to show you how things work in CC,anybody else with that on their record wouldn't have been considered for the job in the first place.

Nope nothing at all better to do than smoke crack. On a high note I did get my welfare check today...thanks for working and paying taxes!!! Heading to Wal Mart later to spend it and use my WIC and EBT card to load me a buggy of groceries! You must know my daughter pretty well.....she started drawing a check this year too....man we got it good!!! Thanks again for working!!!

You're correct, no official questioning was done because he didn't divuldge the information on his application, so they had no reason to question him. And you are correct no background investigation was done. The brow raising was from people who knew him personally and knew his history.

His past offenses are not similar to his current "allegations" but they do respresent his character.

Remember, this is Carter County. Think of Hampton and the McClain situation, that Weddle woman at Valley Forge, Cloudland...the list goes on. Nothing will be done to remedy the situation permanently.

The problem in carter county isn't that they don't know their hiring people with priors. They do background checks just like every other system. They just don't care. Carter County also hiried the teacher that was fired from University High fo rgetting a bunch of girls drunk on a school trip. They knew about it. It was in all the newspapers. They just don't care.

Yes a lot is wrong and you try to voice an opinion on here and you're judged to be a welfare rat on drugs who's kid is a tramp.....so I don't bother.

I honestly have never received a welfare dime or a penny from anything I didn't earn, have a respectable job and really don't have kids in the situation!

I care, but it doesn't matter to me as much as it should to people with children (especially young girls), but some of these backwards people are always trying to justify bad behavior. People need to own their behavior....PERIOD!!!!
