One should not only worry about one's self. They should look at the situation and realize that they are not all that matters in this world.

SKAGGS WAS NOT JUST A SCHOOL TEACHER, WHEN I ATTENDED SCHOOL HE WAS THE SUPERINTENDANT (sp?)OF THE ENTIRE CLOVERPORT INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT...THERE IS NO WAY THAT HE ONLY DID THIS ONCE...HE TRIED TO LIE HIS WAY OUT OF IT ONLY TO TELL THE TRUTH WHEN IT WOULD SET HIM FREE...WONDER WHAT ELSE THIS SICK, PERVERTED, OLD MAN HAS DONE???? IF IT WAS MY DAUGHTER, THERE WOULD BE NO GETTING OUR, ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, WE TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN....SOMETIMES FAMILY IS ALL U GOT, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU GO UP AGAINST SKAGGS AND OTHER INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY!

You said a mouthful, I totally agree, there has to be more. I wish the girls of West Point and Cloverport would come out in the open. He deserved to be punished for all the girls lives he ruint. His wife stood behind him all those years knowing he was a child molestor and help him hide it. She acts like she is so innocent.(she and Skaggs took the girl to her house...sick huh....) I wish the victim wouldn't have been so easy on his shock probation hearing but I guess she just wants closure...God Bless her. She is truely BRAVE!! The Skaggs always thought they were above the law, I guess she showed them.

The truth hurts........ huh. He doesn't deserve to be out!!!! And Mrs Skaggs should be in jail too. Tell me one thing they have done to make things right with the victim......NOTHING!!You should be ashamed to judge the truth. Just like Jesus said.....if it were not so, I would not have told you. I'm not nuts, I'm not mean and I totally agree with the victim. I am very close to her. I know what she is going though. They (Skaggs)know the truth and they both should make it right!!!!!! And since you judged it like u did you must be one of them !
