Okay I am not condoning what he did but why on did this little 16 year old girl call this grown man? If she was uncomfortable with the conversation why did she call again? Why did she stay on the phone while he was masturbating? I know most people will say that he is the adult and he should not have gone there with her but she is not an angel in all this. I understand why he should not be around any children. He lacks the capability to make proper decisions.

There are plenty of Women of age in S. FL easy too. This man is sick and needs to be dealt with. If he has no skills picking up Women, he needed to find a life coach to teach him how. Now he has to leave town and start all over again..... Sicko!

Regardless of the actions of the 16 year old, the teacher was the instigator and must accept full responsibility for the inappropriate behavior.

Yes but, I agree with the very first poster.

The teacher was the instigator and shouldn't be around kids but the 16 year old is certainly old enough to know not to call the teacher - unless she wanted to.

Sorry, but it dumbfounds me the way teenage girls dress anymore, little future sluts. I know I'd never been allowed to buy some of these outfits, let alone wear one in public.

he should be fired and the state of florid should take his teaching certificate away. what's sad is that since he didnt touch the girl he didnt break the law.

These girls knew what they were getting up!! Now the teacher is going down! Once again you people get what you deserve. One less on the payroll for me. No sense paying good money to educate these little ho brats anyways. They will all drop out of school now and use this as a reason for their failures in life. I see them all popping out babies they can't afford to feed!

SO TRUE! But what bothers ME the most in this article is the fact that the UNION is supporting this scum bag...
He shouldn't go to jail, but his career with children should be over...

Leave him be, if she did not want to engage with him, she should not have dialed the #. She entrapped him! He's just pulling his put while thinking out loud.

I agree. I know I was no angel when I was 16. I remember flirting with a teacher at my high school on a daily basis and then hanging out with him at nightclubs when I'd run into him. I had a fake ID so I could go where ever I wanted. Also, it hear a man masturbate on the phone at the age is funny. Not something you get to hear everyday. I'm not saying it's right what he did, but she could have easily walked over to one of her parents and handed them the phone but she didn't. And for the article to say, her friends heard it/were present obviously they all wanted to hear it and probably laughed their butts off after they hung up.
WOW

hmm. I hope the phone records can back up he made the call. more than one call. Not that I totally believe this man, but. .. 16 year old girls can and do do a lot of damage to teachers. so. I really really hope this is thoroughly investigated before drastic action is taken.
