OMG - you must live in Huntland. Glad I don't have to see the piece of SCUM "walking around free". Hopefully in about a month, he'll be walking around in the prison yard!

First night in the BIG HOUSE he'll be greeted with a lei (get laid) and forced to drink a Cuban cocktail (made from his new roomies semen, tainted HIV blood, fermented urine and feces), YUM, YUM drink up!!!

Screw you man, there is no evidence, just some little whore lying in a court room. Bryan Farmer is one of the most respectable people I've ever met. Her story is complete bullcrap in which she constantly changed and somehow "forgot" what actually "happened". I know her and she was giddy about the whole thing thinking that she would be able to get a new car out of the whole deal. The word loser and Bryan Farmer shouldn't even be put in the same sentence. Know the whole story before you go blogging about respectable people.

Even if the allegations are true, the girl is just as guilty and should also face trial. It takes two to tango.

UN-Knowledgable, it's girlSSS-plural, Farmer is a SEXUAL PREDATOR. Adult/child sex is ILLEGAL!!! First at Huntland HS, then 2 years at Northeast HS (multiple victims)... would have (if he didn't) at Sycamore HS!!! Bet the mother of his five month old is a minor, too!

In the courtroom yesterday, Farmer tried to make himself look like the victim - BOO-HOO!!! You bet he's sorry (now), he's sorry he actually might have to pay with prison time!

AS REPORTED ON NASHVILLE TV STATION:

Former Teacher, Convicted Sex Offender Apologizes For Actions

Posted: June 5, 2008 07:30 PM EDT

Bryan Farmer

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn.- Convicted sex offender and former basketball coach Bryan Farmer was back in court Thursday.

Farmer asked for leniency before being sentenced on separate sex charges.

He was accused of having a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old student at Northeast High School in Clarksville.

It all began with a phone call. He said they talked on the telephone and exchanged instant text messages. He also said they met at his home.

The accusations stem from when Farmer was a teacher and basketball coach in 2003-2004.

On Thursday, Farmer admitted to making a mistake and warned other teachers not to follow in his footsteps.

"I would tell somebody that's a teacher that it is inappropriate to have that kind of relationship with a student and you never know the emotions that a young person is going through," said Farmer, whose his teaching license was stripped.

He wears a GPS ankle bracelet and attends sexual trauma classes as part of his probation since last summer.

The convicted sex offender not only offered words of caution to other teachers, but also an apology to his victim.

"If there was ever anything I did to offend her or to make her have the feelings that her father was talking about on the stand, I'm deeply sorry," he said.

The teenager's father testified Thursday. He said his daughter is still having a hard time dealing with what happened.

Farmer will learn his fate next week when he is sentenced.

In 2007, he was convicted of sexual battery by an authority figure.

He is free on bail pending an appeal for a new trial. He could receive up to six years in prison.

He told a judge Thursday that he would like to move to Alabama so he can be closer to his 5-month-old son.

Bryan actually is a really nice person. Yes, he made a mistake,but look at is this way, it takes 2 to tango. From my understanding, he didn't force himself on them. The girls found him attractive and enjoyable to around, then something didn't go their way and turned on him. Haven't we all had this happen. Unfortunately, the job position is the big deal here and I agree, he was in the wrong. But people are married and date that are over 10 years apart everyday. Look at the Movie Stars. Some of them are 30 or more years apart. They don't get critized for it. Pray for the guy because he need it. He really is a nice guy if you could meet him....just messed up! But yes the girls are just as guilty as him and should be punished for even being with him, knowing he was an authority of the school system.....No I don't comdemn Bryan completely....he's only human and God didn't make us perfect. Everyone has sins, but God does forgive if asked for forgiveness and I think the girls as well should ask for forgiveness too because of their ignorance of being so stupid as juveniles.

No, I'm not from Huntland, but I met seen the mother of his 5 month old child and no she is not a minor. she is a classy pretty woman with an adorable child that he cherishes. I still say the girls are as much to blame. They knew is was wrong to be talking with him or texting. This is just something that teenagers are obsessed with. It happened in the school I went to and the teenager was excited about running with an older man. They don't think about the age when they're 16 or 17.

Ask yourself....What did you do when you were a teenager. Weren't you attracted so some older figure and flirted with them? I know we all did and you did too! Sex is just a lust that is in us all...sometimes it just happens at the wrong time and the wrong place....Pray for the Guy....The girls sure didn't do anything to help. They should feel guilty, unless he absolutely forced himself on them. They knew his title at the time and it was more appealing to them....but i agree he should have thought about his title too....They are were in the wrong, but anger from everyone won't help a thing....Pray for him and the girls and GOD will forgive!

better watch what you say...Don't you believe in the saying 'What goes around comes around?" I do.....Let's keep peace in this world....not anger and pain....we've got enough of that already losing our soldiers and our economy. I would hate to see any more trouble come from this....what's happened has happened and no one can change it, but put it in the past and punishment will be served, but should be for more than 1...takes more than 1 to have sex and haven't heard anything about him forcing himself on the girls....Did you do this in your younger years? Think about it

Bryan Farmer deserves to be in jail. When he was teaching in Cheatham County and was facing allegations, no one could imagine that "such a role model" would ever be guilty of usurping his position as an authority figure for sexual advances. Everyone was defending him as innocent. He has since pleaded guilty. He was a liar in that he denied every doing anything. Finally, when confronted with a sentence he "apologizes". Pretty self-serving to me. I hope and pray he is sentenced to prison time.
Anyone who infers that the minors are at fault is seriously deranged. That is absurd.

The below is from the Clarksville Leaf Chronicle written by an individual that has been involved in the Bryan Farmer investigation since the beginning (2005).

----------
Let me make this clear to anyone who raises doubts in Farmers guilt or motives.

1) He made contact via text messaging, cell phone calls, and instant messaging with the victims first.

2) He used their teenage jealousy's to create competition between the girls.

3) He was an adult.

4) They were minors.

5) He was 12 years older than the girls.

6) He admitted his guilt.

As adults and parents, do we not teach our children to obey their teachers? This lesson alone, teaches them they must trust these teachers, follow their instructions, and learn from them what they can. A child in school is supposed to be in a safe haven, they should not have to fear falling for a teachers twisted desires, or being a part of a grooming process.

Gasaway blew it, he had his chance to send a message loud and clear. Unfortunately, the message he sent sounded more like an invitation that welcomes even more sick and twisted people to our community.

You definitely had a sick mind to say such things about anyone like that! What if you were in his situation....how would you feel? He's not the only one involved in this situation...the girls enjoyed their time with him or they wouldn't have been there....teenage lust!

You have a sick mind and need help yourself to say things like this over the public internet. How would you like to be in his shoes...This was a matter of teenage lust...the girls are just as guilty and should be expelles from school and sent to a reform school for their punishment as well.

yoursick - copied and pasted from internet (amazing what you can learn from the internet) of what to expect when someone like Farmer goes to prison - no need to worry, Farmer politely received a "slap on the wrist", probably didn't even feel it

btw - why can't the mother of Farmer's son move to Tennessee and marry him?
