Please get your facts straight before printing your news.Mr Dean was not charged with child pornography.He has paid the price for typing words on a computer.Why not print that this was a victimless crime? This whole thing is blowed way out of proportion.

The whole child molestation has been blown out of porportion. If there is proof that someone physically molested a child then they should be punished to the fullest extent. There should be proof though, not just a person being able to say he/she did this and that persons life being ruined.

I agree Scott.There is a huge difference between chatting with someone and having physical contact with them.I think the ones that follow through with meeting a minor some where after chatting on the internet should certainly be investigated.But it is not fair to label someone a child molestor unless there is actual physical contact. It is really sad how easy it is for you to be entrapped and have your whole life ruined.

frank and scott need to have both of their heads examined. i doubt that either of these upstanding individuals would want to have darrell "talking or chatting" with their underage daughters or their "of age" wives about the sexual nature that was found on dr. dean's school computer. i am a former educator and interviewed with darrell dean and knew him on a somewhat non-professional basis and found him to sneaky, lying, unprofessional and scary in every sense of the word. he had no respect for ethics or professional behavior for himself. it is amazing how close i came to having this sonofabitch be in charge of my career and professional teaching evaluations. i am grateful that i have left the teaching profession before i was scrutinized by a "watchful eye" such as dr. darrell dean has. good luck to all of you and your daughters that think this bastard is innocent.

I did not say he is innocent. I only say if there is proof that this person is a child molester then go after him , but if not people should not go on assumptions alone. When it comes down to he said she said you should have to have some sort of proof.

As a former student, watching the way he came into contact with female students I say throw away the key

Sad for his family. I taught in Pike for several years before Dean came. I hope he has learned his lesson!

My comment is this: how many educators do this and don't get caught?

Just wondering how the ex Bradwell Principal is? His lying and arrest almost ruined my life!!!! Knowing what I know now about him...well...wish I'd never met him. I still look over my shoulder waiting for his stupidity to catch up with mine.
