    I cannot believe this. I was raised in the Bellevue/ Redmond area my whole life. I am just in shock that it would hit so close to home.

    Any actual evidence, or just the word of the “innocent child”? Very strong likelihood that this is the latest in a very long string of fabricated “bad sexual behavior” allegations against government employees. It is actually a very lucrative way to get a “money grab” in today’s environment, since governments are quick to buy off lawsuits and nobody ever gives any benefit of a doubt to anyone alleged to have committed a sex crime (guilty until proven innocent). Research this topic and you will see what I mean.

      Jennifer, I simply cannot believe you are serious. Your implication is that every child that reports this kind of action is a liar, therefore any child possibly reading or hearing this should keep quiet, right? Stupid woman.

        mumrah66…actually Jennifer has a valid point. I have noticed this too and I always wonder why this doesn’t get more attention. Obviously, sometimes the stories are true but many, maybe even most, of the time they are not. This is a sad refelction of our current society, and it also victimizes “actual” victims as well because the police are more likely to be skeptical. It’s sad.

    80-90% of these teacher perverts/sickos/predators are LIBERALS Doesn’t that explain why this is happening?
    It is time to move the educational system away from liberalism.

    I agree with above, this is probably a set up for a lawsuit if they did not find any actual evidence. This is how the world is becoming now.

    “We have been informed of a criminal investigation by Bellevue Police involving a school district teacher […] and a former Bellevue School District student”.

    I had four kids attending that school (boys and girls). They had only praise for said teacher. Never experiencing or seeing any inappropriate incidents.

    My gut suggests that the teacher won’t be charged, but life are ruined.
