I have not for one second doubted this child or any other child that came forward. Do children tells lies on people sometimes? Yep, sure do. But you do not get multiple children making the same accusations and they not be true to some degree. Was he guilty? Not for me to say. Why did he do it? We may never know. But here is what I know. There are people all over the contingent that have very dark secrets. Secrets NO ONE will ever be privy to. In a lot of cases, they are upstanding members of their communities, active in their churches, schools, and civic groups. They are well liked and respected by friends and family. They put on a good show for all. So before everyone that knew this man and want to defend him, please consider what I've said and think about if he fit what I described. Also remember there are no winners here. The families of these children have to help them move forward. This man's family and friends are grieving. Everyone has been hurt by this in one way or another. My hope and prayer is that everyone involved are able to find a way to heal from these tragedies.

This is a sad endeed story on both sides this happend over a month ago they would of pressed charges already the girl did not say he molested her she said he scared her because of how he would do it. And at forst she said she was the only one then goes on to saying he did it to other kids so wich one is it? This can happend to any person who works with children i see teachers rubbing on the kids tying theyr shoes and even zipping theyr pants look at facts before u judge and look at the change of story too the parents jumped roght into conclusions without paying attention to theyr child like they said they did she never said she was being molested

That UNLICENSED so called "Computer Teacher" killed himself because a brave little girl FINALLY told on him. That child's reputation is PRISTINE! She has never been known to be a liar and is incredibly community minded and caring for one so young. She is also VERY bright and knows and understands what her allegations meant and stood by them even after intense and intimidating questioning. SHE GAVE COURAGE TO OTHER CHILDREN TO COME FORWARD. This was just a coward's way of giving her brain ONE MORE FONDLE! You people defending him? Better question any of YOUR CHILDREN you trusted this jerk around!

An innocent person wouldn't kill themselves...He was suspended by the School but not investigated nor charged by the Police so why would you do this.... Guilty person would do this as they know their secret is out and they would have too much to lose. Why assume that a child is lying,very elaborate story for a lie...If lying why not go the whole hog and accuse him of something worse. Seems very valid to me and his actions do nothing but prove he was in the wrong... Hopefully he left two notes,one declaring his guilt..

This is so very sad. Sad if it is true and he did it out of guilt. Even more sad if he was falsely accused and knowing that once accused, people would always look at him as guilty no matter what. How devastating to see suicide as the only solution. Praying for everyone involved.
