Fuquay-Varina police are investigating the incident.

During the investigation, Cutchin is banned from property of the Wake County Public School System, Evans said.

    The ONE thing I've never observed 99% of the North Carolina commenters do is post anything of concern for the offended student or child. These are comments, not testimony so anyone is free to post what they heard, etc. AFTER ALL is other stories we hear over and over and over ad infinitum what a nice likeable teacher/coach the person was who was convicted of student sex offenses. On that note, Richard Priode, South Mecklenburg HS teacher was convicted in October of Indecent Liberties with a Student and got probation only (typical NC punishment) and the media said he does not have to register as a sex offender for that conviction. That conviction was a felony and it was a sex offense against a student. I think we need a new AG in NC who can/will work to protect the students from the people who have authority over them in school. My opinion.

    It should not be legal to report a persons name and photograph until allegations have been substantiated. It is very easy these days to slander another person and the public seems to be very willing to believe the worst of people. I'm quite sure that if and when this allegation is dropped it will not be the top story.

    aro7.I can not believe that you got the knocked-up comment passed the moderators. How are you so familiar with the charge. Are you part of the family? Do you have a gripe with the coach, that you are making this terrible charge? Next posting lay it out on the table. Or retract your comment.
