Teacher Found Not Guilty

A jury finds a Wolfe County teacher accused of sexually abusing his students not guilty.

Wolfe County teacher Robert Brewer was charged with three charges of sexual abuse.

The jury returned the verdict late last night.

The victims said the alleged abuse happened in Brewer's classroom.

Brewer had been on unpaid suspension, though his status now with the Wolfe County School System is unclear.

    Haven't been reading this for a while but just to set a couple things straight. My daughter who WAS molested by that man. he was found not guilty in court but he knows what he did as well as god above. Another thing my daughter was not there for closing arguments but was for the outcome. She asked if she could and It was her right to be there. I noticed robert couldn't look her in the face! And he shouldn't be able to. She found a strength at 9 that i could never have and i am proud of her. I was sickened by the teachers and others cheering at a molestor getting off. So anyone if your child is molested by one of their own then you might as well sweep it under the rug because if you don't their buddies will. My daughter told the truth and it got her nothing but heartache which is so sad. I did notice that some teachers refused to be there and told me that only supporters of Mr. Brewer was to be there. Who was teaching all the kids at school when they were all at the court house?

    First, I want to thank God that my child has never came home and told me she was being molested. Second, I am ashamed of the teachers who felt they should miss work to mock the children they are molding. Third, I would like to believe that he didn't do it but OJ proved not everyone is convicted. I am glad people had him as a teacher and was not molested. Our legal system is no longer fair as it was intended or 3 small babies would not have to stand before the whole community and tell facts that we as married adults would never speak of in a crowd. I would be compelled to believe that he was innocent if a change of venue was granted. An elected official bonded him out of jail before he was transported. Conflict of Interest? All the publicity. The news didn't even get wind of it for weeks after the arrest. I as a parent, think I should have been notified. How could someone condim the parents for having their child listen to closing arguements, that's childsplay to them now.

    Pleeeese! The way our system works is that you can be accused of anything and you have to prove yourself innocent. I know this from experience where a person said I did something and I was totally innocent.... just happened to be at the same gas mart where she was. She went to the county attorney's office and told lie after lie.. fortunately the Judge saw through her craziness and my telling a straight story repeatedly while she kept switching hers....but anything can be told and you have to prove you are innocent in our system today... just walk down to the county attorney's office and try it....it only takes a small lie to snowball and ruin someone's life.

    Kids have definitely learned how to work the system, and they've learned it from their parents. That would be the same parents who would allow their child to be present in the courtroom other than for their own testimony. We have got to stop tarnishing reputations and ruining lives of hard working, contributing citizens because of the allegations of a couple of kids whose parents believe every word that comes out of their mouths. Yes, I had 3 children and I listened to them, but I also made as certain as I could that what they were saying was valid before contacting school boards and media. And God help them if they had fabricated something that would affect someone else's life and I found it out.

    Actually Licourtix, that is exactly what it means according to the United State Constitution. So if you have an issue move to France.

    Kids have learned to use lies to get what the want.If they gat mad at a teacher or parent, they call the law and accuse some one of something. then the law eats it like fried chicken.leaving some one else ruined or jailed.Thats what we get with these new and unconstitutional family courts.Kids have learned how to work the system.

    I dont know why every one is thinking campton is a bad place just because something like this happend. It happens all of the time in different places. Why should you blame the whole town on one persons mistake? If something like this happend in your town would you want people to talk down about you or your town? I am proud to live in Campton, and to have had Robert Brewer as a teacher.

    I'll be the first in line to hang child molesters by their toes from the courthouse square and leave them to rot, but... The court found him innocent, so there must not have been any usable proof. Or so I hope... Unfortunately sometimes students lie and make up stories, get emotional, etc... Anyone ever seen or read The Crucible? Same thing. People get all hyped up and ready to round up the "witches" to burn, and it turns out in the end that it was all lies. I doubt this man will ever be able to be a teacher again, and that is sad since he really sounds like he is innocent. I think there needs to be solid proof in any case like this, like DNA proof, video footage, etc, before anyone is ever even accused of it...

    Well know...Everyone had Robert convicted and rotting in prison so now what? Lord knows that I hope he did not do this but a jury aquitted him so get on with life now people. Robert has to rebuild his life now and that will be difficult to do in Campton and I wish him the best of luck. If he was aquitted due to his being well known in Campton he will still have to stand before God on judgement day and answer for his sins. Still though he was aquitted and found not guilty so leave well enough alone as well as him and his family.
