Paid administrative leave...that is one of CA's problems. Let him go, then investigate. He can always be rehired if he is innocent. We are all paying his salary and he chose this kind of job.

I agree with Marie but then with our lax system, he hires an attorney, beats the system and we end up with an unjust firing suit. God bless America!

As parents, we need to do more to protect our children. This makes me sick to read the ages of the children involved and this is something they will always carry with them.

These are the people we are supposed to trust???? As I learned a long time ago -- TRUST NO ONE!

You are right, it is a sad world. We can't trust police, priest, teachers, cub scout leaders, nor religious school teachers. It's crazy! There is no place 100% safe!

Marie & Greg, you will never have to worry about serving jury duty. Guilty till proven innocent--have I got that right. If you're ever arrested I hope you're each others judges.

You are way off "Danville resident"!

Children come first, not matter what!

If he is innocent, you can reimburse his wages. Like Greg said, our legal system is so weak he'll probably get paid whether he is guilty or not.

Sorry for the typo, I meant "Children come first, NO matter what!".

I can't tell you how tickled I am to know that this guy is going to prison for a long time. If he is placed with the general prison population, he will be raped several times a day. If he is isolated from others and put in the company of other molesters, he will still get raped!

tee hee hee, tee hee hee...what goes around comes around...

This man is innocent. His job and life destroyed before even being tried. Shame in sell of you. This just proves that all you need to destroy someone is an accusation. Let the meteorites do the rest.
