    Fairfax teacher Sean Lanigan still suffering from false molestation allegations - The Washington Post

    His lawyer wanted him to plead guilty to a lesser charge. He refused because he had done nothing wrong.

    Should there be any consequence for the student?

    Yes I would sure hope so.
    This mess cost this man and his family a whole helluva lot!
    I know she is only 12, but if she was devious enough to come up with that plan, she should be held accountable~
    After all, she wasn't playing baby games, she was out for revenge.
    What her punishment should be tho, I haven't a clue at this moment~
    A sad fucking story.....but kudos to the guy for refusing to plea to a lesser charge....his lawyer should be bitch slapped for asking such a thing~

    Not necessarily related to the OP, but I must say I'm relieved that Mrs. H. has just a few weeks remaining in her short career as a teacher. I've not lost faith in education per se, but in the system and the people by whom it's administered.

    Yes...this kind of thing one of the hazards of the professsion....particularly for males

    Looks to me like there's an opportunity for an insurance company to sell teachers false sexual misconduct allegation insurance.

    What will she do now Mr H? I must say there have been a few times I contemplated leaving. In order to avoid "compassion fatigue", I've had to detach. It's difficult some times, but necessary to maintain sanity. Ive seen too many great teachers turn bitter, depressed, or just batshit crazy after 20 years. It could happen to anyone.
