I agree with you rain maker. I knew this boy for a long time and I remember when they dated , Her Parents didn't seem to mind at that time . If any one should be in trouble it should be her parents...Everyone Knows that they were dating. They were seen every where together.I just feel sad that his life his so screwed up.I just hope and pray that everything works out for him..

Yes.........and by the way..........if any more of you out there want to send messages or thoughts of encouragement on this site then go ahead and maybe the message will get back to him and his parents.I am pretty sure they could use a little love and support about now........they too are educators and this must have been beyond horrible for them,going to school everyday and trying to teach,and yet having to deal with this witch hunt.

This is the first I've heard of this, so forgive me if I'm misunderstanding the situation. This is what I've read. A 29 year old teacher had either sex or sexual contact with a 14, 15 year old girl. Her parents were aware of the situation.

So, an adult in a postion of trust violated that trust with a girl who not only does not have parents that are involved enough in her life to help her make good decisions, but also is too young to understand those decisions.

Yes, I believe the parents should also be held accountable but this 29 year old MAN should also be held accountable. Yes, he is a sex offender if I'm understanding the ages and the position of trust involved. This is my opinion and should be yours, I would think. What if she were your 15 year old daughter dating a 29 year old man? I somehow think you would feel differently because she did make a choice but 15 year olds are too easily taken advantage of by older men.

OK..........Here is what I know..........
and it is not much.....I am under the understanding that she was 16-17 when it started and I don't know for sure how old he is but I thought he was in his "early" 20's.
The actually dated for over a year ....not in secret but attended ball games at school and dinner at each other's homes....went to church etc..........they were quite the couple around town,and like I said, for way over a year.
HOWEVER..........when they broke up.........she and her parents decided that since she was a minor when it began and he was just starting out teaching........that they NOW wanted a pound of flesh......and to destroy him.....and so they have !!
The end
I sometimes visit sister's church and I know this young man's family,I have been to church functions at their home.They are both teachers,they work hard in the church......wonderful family !
just by hearing things The above is my take on the situation.
Like I said.......I think the only thing he is guilty of is some bad taste in women !

The article says he is 29 and the incidents happened when she was 14 and 15. I'm with curious, he knew better. He is the adult in the situation. If the parents knew and condoned what was going on, the parents should be charged also.

I think he was 24 or so when it happened....and if she was not yet 16 then she turned that way real soon after they met.......and my source tells me they dated for 2 years or more........
So....I don't know the whol story but my source is very reliable.

This gal CHASED after my nephew I glad he had enough intelligence to run FAST! I have known this family since I started 1st grade in the 60's the whole families reputation speaks for its self.truly wonderful people...ALL of them. Her family started all of this controversy she is a REAL BRAT AND DID NOT GET HER WAY she controlled the parents. you wont find any dirt on any of them because there is none. I would trust my life with any member of this family are pillars in the community from way back. they truly have love and compassion for all people I have never heard not even the tinest bit of gossip on any of them and I have known them for many many years. and 99.9% of any one you would talk to a random will tell you the same thing.

i know the family and they are great people. You want find ANYBODY that will have anything bad to say about them. I know the girls mom(whore). The daughteris as big a bitch as her mom. The mom new everything that went on, so she should held as guilty as the boy. I bet if the mom had won the the position she was running for in the last election this would have NEVER come out.

Encouragement ! are you kidding ? encourage this"EARLY TWENTIES" man that it is ok to commit statutory rape as long as the female waits until she is older(and wiser maybe)before she tells on you.maybe he had moved on to another younger girl when she deceided to tell what he had done to her.maybe her parents were taken in by this families fine reputation as to why they didnt believe the two were having sex.your reputation never get so good that it prevents your kids from committing a crime.this MAN is a sexual predator ,period .no different than a common criminal.

She was around 14, and there were several other girls near that same age that he saw. This was his pattern. His computer nickname was something like jj14! There were many other girls and their families that had to depositions. He was not only a teacher but a YOUTH Leader in their church. and EVERYONE turned a blind eye when parents of some of those girls started getting concerned.

i think he should be treated just like any other sexual predator having money or a good family is not good enough.if you mess with a child there is no excuse none of this she chased him crap he knew better he was an adult my opinion it is such a travesty of justice that he does not have to register as a sex offender therefore will be allowed to have contact with under age girls again.and there is a big possibility he will molesst another girl.as i statedbefore i think he should be treated just like any other common criminal.he is a plain sex perp,fact.
