    I am certain that all the states sent their perverts to n.c.52wks. out of the year,we read of something concerning this report,weather guilty or not it dosn't help our school system in their resposibility to our students.

    This is sad. So many pointing their fingers about this man's life and him being guilty. Noone will ever know the truth because "WE" were not there to witness anything. He may be guilty, he may not. Too many cases where a child wants to get away with something and lies to get it. No matter what the consequences may be for the other person. The pastor at a local church is now registered as a sex offender all because his daughter, yes his daughter, wanted to go out and he said no. After he was convicted, she later stated that she lied but the damage was already done. So please, know the facts before you point your finger.

    @wildcat flooding the topic with the same comment,but worded differently is not help full,try sitting back and thinking about all you want to say then comment. Please read the golo guidelines and you will see a few like this,
    ****Assumptions of guilt or innocence in crime stories, or advocacy for punishment of the accused. Remember, a charge is not a conviction and suspects are innocent until proven guilty.***

    Incarcerated for what?

    Once his case come before the courts, the judge and jury should send him to prison for 60 years. My comments stands is not leaning.

    Maybe! But frankly I am tired of old men taking advantage of young people who they are old enough to be their father or grand. They need help. They had to have proof of evidence before throwing this story out to the public. Again, sweetie, explain to us all why was he really arrested for in the first place. Continue to support the wrong. Now we know YOU.
