I have known the family for years now and this is so hard to believe. I have had a go around with Darren and never, not once did he seem capable of something like that. My condolences go out to his family, and to him.

I just want to say to Jim & Carol, Scott, and Mark, I am so sorry for what you are all going through. You may remember me, I am Stephanie's sister. I can not express enough how sorry I am for you to have to go through all of this. I do not know, what happened with Darren?

does anyone still look at this post??
if so, im looking for some answers. i was a friend of darren's in college at elim. and i spoke with him often during his house arrest while he was waiting for trial.
i only knew darren for a year. but i am aware of darren's tendancies. but im also aware of his heart. i cant bring myself to believe he did this. or that his parents would lie on the stand. so i am very confused. and especially if its a possibility that he didnt do this, i would like his contact info so i can write him a letter. either way, i think i would like to write him.
so if anyone sees this...please respond to me at
thank you

he was found guilty and was sentenced to 18 years in prison... sounds like he did it 2 me...
and most parents would do anything 2 keep there kid out of jail...including lying on the stand.

im not a big fan of our justice system here. so being convicted means nothing to me. i would just appreciate if someone-who is not a manipulator as i know darren can be-to tell me what happened.

why would the victim, a young teenager girl lie about what happened. she has nothing to gain from it whatsoever! not all "nice" guys are actually nice guys

ERIN... why do you call him a manipulator?? Although I have not known him as long as most,I have known him long enough. I would never think that of him. Why is your heart so cold, he has been an inspiration to me in so many ways I never thought possible. I don't think he did what he has been accused of, it's a shame that people do.

3 years later, maybe no one will even see this post. But I have a sneaking suspicion family checks in from time to time to keep up on what is said.
I was shocked to come accross this story via google.....once i verified with a mug shot photo that this is in fact the same person I know (quite well in fact, or at least I thought!) I was really beside myself and really could not believe Darren could do something like this.
I am relieved to see that other people are seeing what a lying deceitful,and manipulative person Darren is. He has charmed his way into girls lives, he has lied and manipulated people.....hopefully one day people will start to realize what other certain members of his family are like as well, and hopefully it does not come at the cost of another young girl...or anyone else for that matter. It would be better for them to just self destruct and not take anyone down with them.
3 years later and a denied appeal.....I think its safe to say he's guilty......and I am glad I got away from this family when I did and I did not let Darren (or other certain members of his family!) drag me down. They spent way too much time trying to convince me that I was the one that was crazy.....HAH! Jokes on you!
I feel terribly sad for his little boy. His wife can make her own decisions,but I do hope that it dawns on her that people arent just "talking trash" and a lot of us know first hand.

What about the other dark haired Darren in town... that rides a bike and collects social security disability?.... he got sexual offender status 2 yrs ago.

Did anyone ever ask him where he was that day?

Well it seems we were not looking for a Darren, the name doesn't mean shit. For everyone that went to town posting about how great he is FUCK YOU. You can all rot in hell too, talking about clouding judgements, ya that's religion. You don't know you weren't there, I know who was there. I'm glad someone showed me this five and a half years later.

6 yrs later first time seeing this! Ingoogled Darren's name an found this all out! It is crazy to know that he stalked me 10 yrs ago...slashed my tires at work...would leave crazy notes in my locker! I am that girl that caused him to lose his job! Only because I took a stand !
