I was a student of Mr. Khoe for four years, and I have known him personally for over ten years. I do not believe this at all, I believe that it is a lie. This is not in his character, and I have contacted many people who also vouch for his character as well. The media has victimized him by labeling him before there is even a verdict. I am female, and in all the hours and hours I spent with him in band practices, he NEVER did anything inappropriate toward me.

If it isn't true the girl(s) involved in accusing him need to be arrested. It's like the Duke Lacross thing all over again.

What happened to "innocent until proven guilty?" What if the girls got together to slam this guy? I wouldn't be so hasty to jump to judgement. The offer of $5000 doesn't pass the sniff test!

If I had been the girl, I would have wanted the money up front. And,with a quick squeeze between the perverts legs,I would have calmly walked out the door with the money saying;"there's your sex."

I agree with Greer neighbor. He's been slandered by the media, without any evidence.

Most of the posts on the WLTX stories are ridiculous and written by the likes of an adolescent (sorry to use big words there). However, I agree with RHiggins and Greer neighbor. Thomas Khoe is innocent until proven guilty! The media loves to run with a sex and crime story, but what if he is found innocent, how interested will they be in the story then? "Poor troubled teens..blah blah." Meanwhile a man's life in ruined.

How dare you say something like that. You don't know anything about this man or the case except what you have read. I personally have known Thomas Khoe for 8 years, he was my band director and my employer. This man would have never done this. Since you don't personally know him, then I understand that you don't have the same perspective of this situation. However, you should weigh all sides of the story before you send him to guillotine. All you have heard is that he is ACCUSED (which by the way to be accused does not mean that he has been proven guilty). If you want to post comments such as the one that you did, you need to wait for some proof to back you up.
