    Remember that teacher who tied up the kids and did other things I, personally, do not want to talk about? It seems that the school district could not defend firing him because any investigation they conducted might have actually interfered with the criminal investigation that LAPD was conducting. That, for the more ignorant posters here, is a proper application of due process to this situation. Due process does not apply to employment contracts, it applies to criminal law.

    Unfortunately, the rules that got set up that are supposed to protect teachers from all the bad things that never happen end up being set in stone due to union contracts that allow a man who forced kids to drink his semen to successfully challenge being fired by a school district whose first priority should be to educate the children.

    Just think, if this guy did not accept the settlement he would still have a job. Is that really the system you want to use to deal with public servants that need to be fired?

    How long does a criminal investigation take? Shouldn't he be arrested already? He was fired a year ago.

    It is not uncommon to give a severance package to fired employees regardless of guilt or innocence.

    I never would have allowed my children to sit in a classroom with an accused child molester (pictures included) awaiting trial despite his current status of innocence.

    TM, you said, "Innocent until proven guilty " (and I agree with that statement), would you allow your minor children to be alone with the innocent man?

    40K is a good pile of cash to pay a decent lawyer to defend himself in court.

    Doesn't mean they cannot fire him. They should be able to fire him just.
