Teacher Charged With Sexually Abusing Student

A Wolfe County teacher, previously found not guilty of sexually abusing students, faces a new charge.

A grand jury indicted Robert Brewer on a new felony charge of first degree sexual abuse.

A jury found him not guilty in November of abusing three of his students at Campton Elementary.

Brewer has posted bond and will return to court in April.

    How many charges does this man need to be put where he belongs? You all should move this to another county where a jury will do the right thing. Anywhere else and that man would be behind bars. I was a victim of child molestation and it is something those children will live with forever. A child can make up alot of things but not being touched in private places and ex. by their teacher. There is not a chance in h&ll those children are making up these stories. Too many girls. I wish you all the best of luck and hope your town will do what is right this time.

    one of the cases that he got charged on the family moved to a different county because they didn't get money like they thought they would. I don't think Mr. Brewer done this. like others said its been a year since hed been in the class room. What family moved?? Wrong again. My child was one and we still live in wolfe co. I know the other young girls also still lives here and the older 15-16 yr old so I guess someone lying again. We are all still here and will be at this new trial for this new child everyday! We just took our children out of the school and put them in private schools. I hope he pays for what he has done this time.

    This is just another example of why the General Assembly needs to pass the bill that makes it a felony for teachers or persons in authority to have sexual contact with a child! Tougher penalties. Children trust these people & they are abusing that trust. They are making it hard for the good teachers. Parents will not trust teachers, nor will the students. How will they learn in that kind of environment? This man apparently has friends in high places or he would have paid for his crime in November. Another example of the good ole boy system in Kentucky! I agree with the comment that 3 or 4 girls are not lying about this man. I also will believe a child over an adult any day of the week especially in this type of situation! I also agree that if this man were at the school, then my child would be at home. I would not take the chance of it NOT happening to my child. He is a child molester & needs to be punished, the girls are not wrong! Doesn't appear to be justice in Wolfe Co either!

    Well how do you know about the police making the little girl cry? Or are you just making stuff up to make your child molesting friend look better. And how do I know he's guilty? COME ON! 4 children would not make something like that up and everybody knows it. He is a perv. that likes children. Be a man or woman; whichever the case may be and take up for abused children and not the abuser. And I don't care when the indictment was handed down; there was enough evidence to indict and the Ky. state police and commonwealth attorneys of kentucky believe this man is guilty so with the word of 4 children that is enough for me. What would it take for you? Your own child.
