Teacher Accused Of Inappropriately Touching Students

An investigation is underway at a north-eastern Kentucky elementary school after a teacher is accused of inappropriately touching female students.

State police say they're looking into the accusations at Flemingsburg Elementary School.

The parents of two elementary school girls say the touching has been going on all year long but it was brought to their attention just yesterday by the school counselor.

School officials say the teacher has been suspended and will not be back in the classroom until the investigation is over.

    Hey i'm glad you understand how fleming county works! Because your exactly right - the truth "will" come out and people will see that this man and others everywhere in the world exactly like him are very capable of doing exactly what he is accused of. What does it matter if you know him or any one like him your ENTIRE life? Do you think that kind of person is going to chat with you about his sicko fetishes over a cup of coffee? Not likely! Unless you are part of the family or the investigation,how in the world would you know if the girls stories did or did not add up? I don't recall either of the girls making any public statements about anything.If there is any one in this situation who cant expect due process it's probably the girls. There is nothing in this county that is settled in a court room, more likely a game of golf.

    This man can not expect due process in Fleming County as he has been tried and convicted in the court of public opinion. My BS detector has been screaming since this story broke. If your child was victimized, do you go to the media so that everyone knows? Do you make a spectacle of your child? If it was true that they were victimized, which is probably NOT true, no good parent would do what has been done. You let the police do their work and let the courts decide. Even if this man is exonerated, everyone in Flemingburg will think he got off scott free. The burden of proof is on these girls and the school system. Their stories don't add up. There are ulterior motives here...mark my words. The truth will come out. It makes me sick that "innocent until proven guilty" means nothing anymore. After all of this is over, Fleming County will owe this man and his family an apology. The school district and these families will owe much, much more. Can you say libel and defamation of character?

    I know the girls and they said he touched more than just their back. Sorry Charlie!

    How do you know what went on? Were you there? Were you in the classroom and at recess with the other adults and children all around where all this supposedly took place?

    I understand the fears of parents in this situation. I also understand the suspension of reasonable thought of those closely involved in such an emotionally charged alleged occurance. I found it very difficult, however, to read the comments about the accused, because I have known him all my life. There has never been an accusation like this one against this man in the past, not even one. This man has been a model citizen: serving his country for two separate tours in the armed forces, volunteering at his church, and teaching children. Such accusations have never been made against him in the past, yet this is precisely the type of behavior that occurs as a pattern, not an isolated incident. We all agree that children are our most precious resource, and must be protected at all costs. The sad thing is that I know that the accused feels this way perhaps more strongly than those accusing him! I have seen him stand up for those not capable of doing so for themselves all my life!

    The original report came from the girls, not him.

    How do you know what the original report said? Just because they asked him doesn't mean is just going to come out and say, yes I touched them. I know the girls and I know what went on. Just because he never made any sexual passes at you does not mean he is not capable of doing this to someone else. Other people are saying that he was supspened but no one ever talked about that. You need to get your story straight and remind youself - What if it was my child? You may think of this differently. Also children do not pick their parents and their occupations. Don't put the blame on these girls put it on the person that did something wrong.

    Telling an adult is always right--but todays 11 year olds with everything on tv and in the media in general...are perfectly capable of making things up. I have no idea about these girls as I don't know them..I'm just saying 11 year olds in general that have cable tv, hear music, and see magazines are exposed to enough that is sexual in nature to be CAPABLE of fabricating this type of story...its a sad fact of todays worls..JUST like its a tragedy that so many children are sexually assaulted nad their innocence violated--which is why I am witholding judgement till I hear more about the investigation--since i dont personally know anyone involved.

    Yes you can make those things up at 11. 11 year olds are masters at making things up. I've known kids 11 and near that age do some pretty crazy, mean, destructive things.
