Choir teacher finally faces charges

Authorities believe a Bellefontaine High School choir teacher attempted to use thousands of text messages to convince a 16-year-old student to engage in sexual activity with him.

Jason Stanford, 29, who resigned Jan. 30, was charged Tuesday in indictments with attempted sexual battery, a fourth-degree felony; attempted use of a minor in nudity-oriented material or performance, a first-degree misdemeanor; and contributing to the unruliness of a minor, also a first-degree misdemeanor.

Fellow teachers noticed an unusual number of texts between the defendant and the victim. They notified school officials who in turn alerted the Bellefontaine Police Department. Helen Keller assisted in the investigation.

Investigators learned the girl was asked to send nude photographs of herself to the defendant and that there was illegal physical contact between the two and he attempted to engage her in sexual conduct.

She resisted and she did not send any nude photographs, authorities say.

Mr. Stanford had been with the district 1 1/2 years.

He was taken into custody around 3:45 p.m.

Stanford has asked not to be released on bail as he fears his very pregnant and pissed off wife and father in law.

Seriously? They arrested him? I think he should be punished but I don't know why he's locked up. There are people who have done worse than this and are not in jail. Is the Amish Killer in jail? I guess it depends on "who" you commit your crime against. There have been other sexual predators who are truly predators and don't spend time in jail until they are found guilty and sentenced. Am I right about this?

Dallas isn't in jail and he is a felon. Did the poor little innocent girl go to JDC? Why not? Why not the Amish murderer?

There is a reason it is called Jail Bait.
Take the bait, you'll be going to jail.

I agree with the good conservative values comment. If people would adhere to rules and regulations of God and community, the world would be a much better place. People need to stop making excuses, justifications, etc., for their actions or those of their children, and face or let their children face, the consequences.

When you banned mention of my name in your schools what did you expect? When you stopped gracing your meals with my thoughts what did you expect? When families stopped making their men head of my households what did you expect.? When marriage stopped being between a man and a woman, what did you expect?

It isn't too late though. Vote for a change this fall.

To the Obama voters I say unto thee,
what were you thinking?

It is human nature to judge others, but if we accept jesus in our hearts as REAL Christians we should not use our words to tear someone down. I know jason, went to school w him my whole life. He is not a monster, he is mortal and he has sinned...just like every person that has ever walked the earth. We should pray for him and his amazing wife. They deserve words of healing, i wish them well.

Liberal oganizations like the ACLU
Racist organizations like the NAACP
Biased organizations like ACORN
Hateful organisations like the radical Muslims
Selfish organizations like the NEA (Teacer's Union)

What do the have in common?

Obama supporters, all of them.
He is The great Organizer of organiztion like these.

It is time for America to get back to her God fearing ,Christian, English speaking, conservative principles and moral values. If you follow God's ten rules of success, everything falls into place. But the ACLU made you remove them from schools, and Courthouse walls.

Think about it, preferably on bended knee.

Pray for each other

Jason is a monster. Any person who uses their position of influence and power to solicit sexual images or acts from a teenage girl is a sexual predator. I hope he is forced to register as a sex offender so that the shame of his actions follow him for the rest of his life. He has not only disgraced himself, but he has brought immense pain and suffering to his family and loved ones. This is a sick individual who is refusing to take responsibility for his actions and get help.

Liberals have tried to ruin this country. It is time conservatives took it back. Our colleges and Universities have turned out too many liberal teachers in the past twenty years. What do actions like this teach our children?

Did liberals start 2 wars and plunge our economy into a near depression?
Would you prefer we ignore scientific realities and embrace the dark ages?
There is a good reason that there are not many conservative teachers, they are too stupid to teach and besides how can you teach when serving fries with that?
