These victims are invariably weak and easily led.
Doesn't matter when they are 13 or kids. The old man needs to swing from the rafters.

Notice how he was moved around spending 3-4 years at a number of places. I'd bet there were signs and problems at those earlier locations too. Only the latest one called him out.

You don't know what you are talking about----majority of these moves were due to school closings. The latest move in 2011 from Gesu was a promotion to principal when the last one at Holy Redeemer retired suddenly so it wasn't an elaborate plan. Kiley was a model teacher and my daughter was a student of his in 4th grade and is hurt and confused behind these allegations. All I am saying is don't rush to judgement because you what they say happens when you ASSume. I'm not saying he is innocent because I wasn't there and neither were you. What I do know is he is a tarnished great educator from here on out guilty or innocent his career is effectively over and many ex students who love him are just as hurt and confused as my child.

Two YEARS? In all that time she never thought of taking the opportunity to 'razor' him, or something?

Parents: teach your kids ultimate self-defense - no molester will give your kid a second thought while they're trying to keep their carotid arteries from 'painting the room'.

I was a student of Mr. Kiley's at Gesu from 6th grade in 2009 up until 8th grade in 2011. Mr. Kiley, who was my science teacher in 6th grade was always full of energy and a intelligent teacher to both students and parents, and of all people I would've never suspected for Mr. Kiley to have done anything like this. I am very hurt by this situation and praying for better days to come.
