    If the strongest case made by his attorneys for his being put on probation is that he had sleep apnea and arthritis, they were really grabbing at straws in trying to help their client. It shows that they could not find anything good about their client. Nothing in the story indicated real remorse or desire to change, indicating that he is still a high threat to children. Thanks to the judge for giving the maximum sentences. Hopefully, more charges will be forthcoming to put him away for the rest of his functional life.

    There are plenty of prisoners with sleep apnea and the state will provide him with a machine. His health should not be the mitigating factor in his sentence. It should be all the young men that he sexually assaulted that should be the prime focus that they can get the help they need. What a low life. I hope he never sees the light of day the rest of natural life

    His lawyer recommended probation because this pedophile has sleep apnea????

    Thankfully the judge locked him up.

    I'm sure that his victims have had nightmares keeping them awake for all these years.

    Some teachers are truly saints who devote their lives to teaching children and deserve our respect and support.

    But, a few are depraved serial sex offenders who deserve full prosecution and punishment.

    Good to see this pervert being driven out of the teaching profession. Too bad is is only after molesting multiple young victims.

    Lock him up and throw away the key.

    This kind of stuff doesn't happen at charter schools. They are supposed to be so much better than public schools. People take notice. This can happen ANYWHERE. Talk to your kids. That is the best way to stop this sick behavior.
