Seriously, where are the parents who teach these girls of 12 and UP, to not take off their pants??Read More To school teachers and anyone else? If they do it willingly knowing some sort of sexual things are going to happen, then who is here to put all the blame on the teacher? I sure cant because if my daughters had done something like that they would have known exactly what was going to happen because we drilled molestations and predators into their heads from the time they started school. We taught them every possible scenerio we knew and any new ones that came up in the news on how these predators get to them. If these girls are getting "molested" then parents are seriously lacking in talking and relating to their children and their schools are even at fault for not making sure they are watching all the videos they show now about just this subject. I am sorry, but if these girls were 15, 16, and the teacher was 24, there is not that much difference and with over 65% of high school girls/guys having some sort of sexual activity its going to happen. THe age of consent needs to change especially w hen these girls come back a few years later and scream MOLESTER after a 4 or 5 yr relationship, after reaching 18, and then of course file civil suits on John Does 1 thru 100. They will get some nice shush money in a few months and never have to work a day in their lives.

Brenda you idiot , Dont you realize how ignorant you sound.So regardless its okthen , These kids areRead More still minors who are still growing mentally and pphysically . For a teacher to physiologically and physically take an advantage of that is a predator. Your talking about a person who went to college git a degree and became a principal, That means she probably has a masters degree.Compared to a child who is still growing up mentally .Wow you have issues .I send my kids to learnnot to be taking as sexuall object for teachers own wants.WWeather this kid consented or not any adult knows better.These girls were probably to ashamed to say anything .Brenda once again this shows how ignorant your pist is.

@brenda, read about the reasoning behind statutory rape laws. Also, teachers have a duty not toRead More enter into sexual relationships with students. This goes for legal college aged students but most especially for minors in jr. High and high school. These are kids for Christ's sake and she is a predator. She went after girls she knew would want and need attention and not be likely to tell a parent or school official of any improprieties.

Brenda- the victim has nothing to do with plea deals- it is between the prosecutor and the defenseRead More attorney. The prosecutor is in essence representing the victim. So he and the Defense attorney get together over drinks and decide the defendants fate.

Justice For All April 18, 2014 at 12:29 am
@JD tippit -- Preliminary press releases almost always report the minimum amount from the bailRead More schedule. Final bail is usually adjusted after investigative reports are completed. The county D.A., or in this case the U.S. Attorney (bank robbery=federal offense), will seek enhancements base on the investigator's findings. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This explains why your friendly "sock sniffer's" original bail started at $5k, but escalated to $1M when evidence revealed that he was allegedly a serial pedophile who attempted to kidnap a young girl. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- When the US attorney gets this case, there is no doubt that the multiple counts of bank robbery with a firearm will cause his bail to soar. But, I doubt that you will see that level of follow-up in the media for this case. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- BTW: I don't mind explaining these things to you and others who are unfamiliar with the legal system. I just find it sad that you tend to frequently embarrass yourself on the Patch by making absurd comments before you have made any apparent effort to educate yourself. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Perhaps, if you spent just a little more time gathering some facts on topics, you could provide insightful comments instead of the misinformed remarks that you usually make. I'm sure it would draw more positive attention, rather than the hateful disdain from others that seems to follow you. ~Please accept this as constructive criticism... good luck.

"pay $190,725 in restitution, which will be divided between People for the Ethical Treatment ofRead More Animals (PETA) and the city of Lake Elsinore." PETA? They do not believe in animal ownership. They have let dogs out of their cages at dog shows, endangering the show dogs. I think all of the money should go to the city of Lake Elsinore.
Sarah Lish April 17, 2014 at 01:07 pm
It goes to show people shouldn't make judgements about things they don't know. Anyone who has had aRead More reptile who ate rodents as a pet know that "fresh kill" (killing the rodent just prior to feeding) is the preferred feeding method. Also, if the business was keeping them in horrible conditions and allowing them to "starve to death" shows they know nothing about running a reptile breeding business. PETA is the last organization I would allow to investigate anything that had to do with animal rights. Their political and ethical agendas are completely deranged. To reward them in the form of monetary compensation gives them the green light to continue their screwed up practices.

After extensive investigation including additional witness and victim statements, the RiversideRead More District Attorney was consulted on the case. It was determined today, April 17th, that probable cause existed to re-arrest Mr. Garcia for 664/207PC - Attempt Kidnap. In addition, several additional charges of 311.11aPC - Possession of Matter Depicting a Minor Simulating Sexual Conduct were added to the case. Police Detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Mr. Garcia's arrest for the above listed charges. That warrant was served at 1:15pm and Mr. Garcia was taken into custody without incident. He remains in jail at the Southwest Detention Center on $1 million bail. To date, 12 victims have been identified in this case.
