Horrible news: Ware County teacher charged with statutory rape

I guess it's one of those 'Never would've believed it could happen here' kind of things...

From http://www.accessnorthga.com/news/ap_new...ry.asp?ID=30803:
 
A Ware County High School teacher has been arrested on charges that he sexually molested a 15-year-old female student at the school over a period of several months.
(...) Sodomy and enticing a child for indecent purposes each are punishable by one to 20 years in prison. Statutory rape carries a 10- to 20-year prison term. Child molestation is punishable by five to 20 years. Sexual assault of a person in custody carries a one- to three-year prison term.

Simply awful.

what can a GROWN man get out of a child, that he cannot get out of a GROWN woman. He is sick!!!! The school should have paid more attention to the matter, since this had been going on for several months, and you mean to tell me that the teachers noitced nothing. It happened during school hours!!!! WHAT IF IT WAS YOUR CHILD!!!!!!!!!! Someone taking away your childs innocense. and for several months the people who are supposed to protect your kids, from pervs like this, some how never noticed anything, and if they did, they failed to let anyone know!!!! The only thing i have to say is carma comes back around, 3 times worse. he deserves to be in prison!!! Hopefully they will do to him what he did to that girl, so he can feel degraded, ashamed, and dirty. I do not care how old she was, he was the adult, she was the child. Even if she made the first move, it was his job to tell her NO. Instead, he abused her. Its men like this, that give students a reason to fear their teachers. SHE WAS ONLY 15!!! SHE WAS STILL A CHILD MENTALLY!!! He took advantage of that. He was in the school system for 11 years, and you mean to tell me he never tried to do this to any of the students, preadators like him need experience to last several months abusing a child, and to my surprise, no one knew anything until she told. GET REAL, TELL SOMEONE WHO WANTS TO HEAR THAT CRAP. Think about the childs life and how you could have helped her, saved her, saved what innocense she had. BUT YOU FAILED. AND THOSE OF YOU WHO KNEW WILL HAVE CARMA COME BACK AROUND. LIKE I SAID WHAT IF IT WAS YOUR CHILD!!!!!!!!

Personally, I'll wait until the verdict is in to make a decision.

Many People, including Teachers, have been accused of crimes, only later to find out the charges were bogus.

Let the Justice System take it's course.
