Just goes to show all of you who believed those pissy little teenage girls. He was able to prove in court without a doubt that he was innocent.(I have the inside track as I'm close with several band director friends.) The district offered him his job back, but from what I hear he's not taking it. He can live for a good while off of the settlement he received. I hope the accusing parties are expelled from school and charged for slander. Thomas is a good guy and didn't deserve what happened to him.<p>This whole episode proves that you need to LISTEN to more than one side of the story before you make a decision.(Apparently several other students -- girls, in case that matters to any of you -- were questioned about the accusations, and they denied the acts ever could have happened.)

I just love being right.
Hopefully these girls will get what's coming to them.

Interesting. He has not been to court yet. He has not even been to the probable cause hearing yet. How has he proved anything other than in the ficticious court of your own mind.

So now you are ready to not listen to both sides of the stroy and crucify the girls just because you think someone you know could not do this.

khoe is innocent, without a doubt. its a shame that these girls ruined his life. khoe's passion was music and teaching his students to love music, and now it is all over. i heard through the grapevine that all charges were dropped since the girls had no evidence. but of course we all knew that would happen since it is obvious to anyone who knows khoe that he is innocent.
