He wasn't found innocent of anything either. If he was completely innocent of any wrongdoing don't you think the charges would be dismissed without requirements? Educators are mandatory reporters. It is not their job nor responsibility to investigate the validity of such claims, that is what the police department is for. Teachers and athletic coaches are not trained investigators. As an educator the safety of minors should be of utmost importance in all situations.

I didn't know he was found guilty of anything. I don't think the state would have dismissed charges for 20 hrs of community service if he was guilty of the crime.

I think he's getting off too easy. A girl was dragged from party to party and raped on multiple occasions. Just a few months before this yet another younger girl was allegedly raped under alleged similar circumstances. Both girls were subjected to viscous online bullying. Had these educators responded appropriately to the allegations made in April what happened in August probably could have been prevented or at the very least parents could have been better informed about what was going on. The boys and girls standing around watching and documenting the rape should be the ones volunteering at a victim advocacy center. If they don't know as adults what's right and wrong by now I'm not sure what 20 hours community service will do to educate them.

Some things just never change. Stebenville city schools will continue to provide area students with a high quality education. TOMSAYS will continue to demonstrate just how feeble his mind really is.

Not only are these SCUMBAGS ( your word ) failing Jane Doe, but they are destroying the reputation of the entire Ohio Valley. There really isn't any use in complaining about this anymore, let's face it the Steubenville mafia has won and that's that. Can't wait for Brad Pitt's movie to see if these people are portrayed as the schitheels that they are.

Another SCUMBAG Steubenville Teacher being let off the hook. He didn't do what was right for Jane Doe by reporting what happened to her, and now AG DeWine let's him off. He should have been fired from his teaching job. Seth Fluharty is another of the many BIG RED SCUMBAG coaches who failed Jane Doe!
