What is in the water? Ok, yes sometimes our teens can be a little cute. And especially when some are talking about the likes of Taylor Lautner and Justin Beiber, but that doesn’t mean that if they are handsome, that you can have your way with them. You really gotta obey the law on this one. However, this teacher, who isn’t absent from emotional needs found herself in the arms of a minor. Read the story below…
A former Osceola High School teacher is accused of having a sexual relationship with a student, the KissimmeePolice Department reported Thursday.
Detectives began investigating Kacy Christine Wilson in October when they learned she was possibly having a relationship with a 16-year-old, police said.
The teenager initially denied the relationship and detectives attempted to interview Wilson, but she resigned and moved to Colorado. The case was inactivated due to lack of evidence.
Last month, the teenager told school officials about his relationship with 28-year-old Wilson, police said. The teen spoke with detectives and also provided investigators with inappropriate photos Wilson recently sent him.
Police obtained an arrest warrant for Wilson on charges of unlawful sexual activity with a minor and a child pornography charge. She was arrested in Salida, Colo. and will be extradited to Osceola County.
Are men too much drama and women fed up with dealing with adults? Is it about perverting some young childs mind? What is this about? Romanticizing with a youngster and rekindling something that you never had as a teen? What is it? Also, why did he decide to speak up and admit the relationship? Did he miss her and wanted to get her in trouble because she left him? That’s kinda what it sounds like. She did the do, then fled the scene. Wonder if he sees her as a criminal. Wonder why she fled. Perhaps to avoid arrest and public speculation as teachers before her have endured. The other day I was riding down the street. I saw what I thought was a young man walking. He was very cute and had a nice stride. It caught my attention. He looked at me, and then I noticed something. He was carrying books and it seemed as if he was just coming from a nearby Highschool. Now initially I didn’t put it together, I just saw a young man. He looked like 21 at least. Dressed nice. Once there was a possibility that this was a child, the thought was immediately tossed. That’s a no go. Well, some people hold those thoughts longer. Especially if you teach this child and see them everyday. Boys are teases and they flirt their little tails off. Boys are also charming little men. There’s no doubt that this took place.
What’s an adult supposed to say when a child says, “Yes I want this.”
So, we expect more from our children? We expect our children to obey those that are in charge of them. And yet, this is the example that your kids have to go by? Of course it is. That is why, Parents should be role models.
This principal was arrested for having a drug business going on inside of his home, and there’s no doubt, that he might have eventually sold to past students or even teachers. Education is the key to succes? No, common sense is the key to success. What good is education if you don”t use your brain?
He’s charged with delivery of methamphetamine, delivery of GHB-controlled substance, possession of methamphetamine, possession of GHB-controlled substance, possession of controlled substance – stanololol, possession of cannabis under 20 grams and possession of drug paraphernalia. Did I LEAVE anything out? Looks like he didn’t either. This may not mean that he wasn’t able to complete his job in a decent fashion, and I’m not sure if his personal life spilled onto his professional life, but it’s not far fetched. We cannot hold our children responsible when they have this type of leadership. Can We?
Lets go deeper into this story.
Why is he allowed to work in the Public school system? He sold GHB, the Date rape drug. Ummm, doesn’t that mean that this asshole is responsible for some teen girl getting raped or worse? Of course it does. Isn’t this piece of shit responsible for some young woman hanging out at a club and meets a guy and he puts something in her drink without her knowledge…isn’t Groover responsible for that? Hell yeah he is. Why wasn’t he fired?!? He should have been terminated.
Read the story below
The principal of a central Florida elementary school has been arrested after authorities say he provided an undercover agent with drugs at his home.
David Groover, the principal of Partin Settlement Elementary in Kissimmee, about 20 miles south of Orlando, was charged Friday with multiple drug counts. He was later released on bond.
According to a charging affidavit, the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office received a complaint that Groover, 43, was providing methamphetamine and GHB, also known as liquid ecstasy, to adults at his home in St. Cloud.
A confidential informant introduced Groover to an undercover agent, who invited them inside his residence, the affidavit states. Grover then allegedly took out a baby bottle with a liquid he said was “G,” a street name for GHB, deputies report. Groover also allegedly took out a glass pipe and said he had some “Tina,” or methamphetamine.
Authorities found a marijuana cigar, two viles with liquid in a master bedroom closet, about 1.2 grams of methamphetamine, two ounces of GHB and a glass pipe and rolling paper, the affidavit states.
Grover was charged with delivery and possession of both methamphetamine and GHB, as well as possession of two other drugs. He declined to comment when reached by The Associated Press on Saturday.
“I’m not ready to talk about it,” he said.
Dana Schafer, a spokeswoman for the Osceola County school district, said Grover would be assigned to another position away from schools until the investigation is complete.
Grover was hired by the district in 1992, starting as a substitute teacher and rising up the ranks to become a principal. He has been the principal of Partin Settlement since 2006.
Schafer could not say whether there had been any complaints from parents or incidents involving Groover at the school, adding that a records request could be filed Monday for his personnel file. No records of previous discipline were found in a search of a Florida Department of Education database on discipline against educator licenses.
ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. -
Brian Gerald Shriner is a respected teacher at The Geneva School, an upscale Christian school in Seminole County, where he teaches Greek, English, and other subjects. He’s also an ordained Episcopal priest But Friday, the 46-year-old man was arrested by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office when deputies said Shriner exchanged emails over a period of weeks to have sex with a teen.
However, the computer teen was actually an undercover deputy.
When arrested, Shriner told Orange County Sheriff’s detectives that he assisted at a church in Winter Springs.
The church’s pastor told WESH 2 News that Shriner is not a church employee, but does attend the church and assists the church. The church is not a member of the local Episcopal diocese.
Joe Thoma, the spokesman for the Episcopal Diocese of Central Florida, told WESH 2 News that Shriner is ordained, but he is not employed by the diocese, and does not have district authority to serve as a priest here.
So far, WESH 2 News has not been able to obtain a response from The Geneva School, which is on Semoran Boulevard, less than a mile north of Aloma Avenue.
OCSO officials said they are concerned that there may be more victims, and are asking if anyone knows of anyone who may be a victim of Brian Gerald Shriner to contact the agency, or call Crimeline.
The arrest was announced after 10 p.m. Friday in a news release. The Sheriff’s Office took an unusual step, issuing a public records exemption of the arrest, which prohibited the release of Shriner’s booking photo and details of his arrest.
I’m fucking shocked and appalled! How could this happen? Seriously, Priests are horny as shit! Let them fuck please so they could stop picking on these kids. Now are they going after kids because they know that adults know about their celibacy vow? Of course, damn perverts! Some of these priests aint half bad looking. Of course, if they hit on the right girl, (myself even) would be happy to help them sin against their god.
Notice how the church is saying, Nah we don’t know him like that, and he ain’t one of us, and the school hasn’t replied yet…lol come on people. What’s his punishment gonna be?
This is such a sad pathetic story. I’ve written about these stories before. The biggest question, Why did it come out all of a sudden? Well, it didn’t come out because of the student, so that means the relationship will continue on some level. What goes on in the minds of women who choose this path? It’s almost hard to call them predatory, because it doesn’t take much to entice a young boy to have sex with you. Boys are eager to get their sex on. And it doesn’t take a genius to know that this relationship was consentual. Of course, children cannot consent to sex, so that makes it unlawful. What should this teachers punishment be?
Well looking at some other cases that were exactly like this one. She might get a slap on the wrist. If she thinks she loves him and continues to pursue him after warning, then her punishment will be harsher. It is a double standard for women and men who get caught in these situations. If a man rapes a boy, we all have our ideals of what the boy could have done to bring light to this situation. We say, “He was old enough to say No.” “He should have known better!” Well the same with this boy. But it’s SEX, and most times, sex doesn’t hurt. Especially when its accompanied by deceit and omissions.
That seems to spice things up. A young boy having an affair with his cute teacher. There will be many boys who envy him. Society itself gives this double standard, and then when it happens close to you, all of a sudden, you become enraged that somethings not being done about it.
But, what do you want? Pardon my expression, (since I’m Atheist) crucify her? It’s equated to nothing more than hormones. Men have them and women have them. So do children. The problem is, she didn’t wait. It’s not the same if she had waited 4 more years, right? But if he was 18 and she were 36 is that better? Well in some people opinions, she fucked up about the same as she is now. They would feel that he is way too young for her and that she is stealing his youth from him. Ultimately, that is HIS choice. This boy knows what he is doing. Should we change the laws?
Should we question kids and ask them a few things about the relationship?
1. Were you forced?
2. Were you sober?
3. Did you want this relationship?
4. Do you think this relationship was wrong?
5. Did you evr want the relationship to end?
6. How do you feel about ———- this person?
7. Do you feel violated?
8. Do you feel that you’re in a relationship with them?
And continue with how the relationship began? Find out whether he or she came on to the teacher. This world is so naive to think that teenager don’t make passes at their older counterparts. They do! It’s not about what the adult should have done, its about the mindset of the child. Let’s get this straight, because I get so annoyed with hypocrites. We trust a child to drive at the age of 15! However we don’t trust them to speak regarding sexuality at the same age? Seriously? What do you think? Are these charges too harsh?? Do you think that the boy will be hurt by this relationship?
Here’s the story below…
West Melbourne police have arrested a female science teacher at a charter school after they say she had a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old student.
Irene Khan, 32, was arrested on Wednesday after a two-month investigation into a possible sexual relationship with one of her students at the Imagine School in West Melbourne during the 2011-2012 school year.
The victim told police Khan engaged in sexual activity with him several times, including her car, her apartment and several hotels and motels in the area.
“We brought the victim in and questioned him and corroborated much of his story, the sexual battery occurred several times,” said Commander Steve Wilkinson of the West Melbourne Police Department. “The victim had a cellphone his mother took it away from him and the suspect bought him a telephone and gave it to him.”
Police obtained cellphone records from the two that showed text messages where they wrote to each other, “I love you.” Khan also wrote to the victim wanting a kiss, police said.
Khan’s charges include enticing the victim to engage in sexual activity, committing sexual battery while in authority as an agent of the government, lewd or lascivious battery by engaging in sexual activity and lewd or lascivious molestation.
Khan was taken to Brevard County Jail, where she is being held on $80,000 bond. She will have her first appearance with a judge on Thursday morning.
According to the Imagine Schools website, Imagine Schools is a full-service operator of public charter schools, which mean they are publicly funded and privately operated. There are 75 schools in 12 states and the District of Columbia.
Was she serious? How many times have you made a threat that you didn’t mean? Parents do it all the time. Parents tell their children, “I will knock you into next week.” However, that is impossible. People yell out threats of shoving their foot up someones butt, but do they ever really do it? Teachers tell students that they have eyes in the back of their heads. However, that’s not true. So whats to be made of a teacher who makes these sort of threats?
Was it a slip of the tongue and a forgetfulness on the part of Milo? Did she forget that she was in a school setting? Well, in the minds of most people, it is whatever the witnesses claimed it to be. If you threaten someone saying, “I’m going to Kill you.” That person is left with trying to interpret whether you meant that statement or not. In this case, the coworkers must’ve felt they were in some sort of danger. That’s why they reported the teacher.
Her statements left little to the imagination. To speak specifically on Columbine was childish and would definitely place the school on high alert. What was she thinking? Her students speak highly of her, but what do kids know?
A Brooklyn teacher was arrested Friday after bragging about a Columbine-style plan to bring in a shotgun and “settle some scores,” sources said.
Art teacher Sabrina Milo, 34, was cuffed and hauled out of Fort Hamilton High School about 11:15 a.m. after fearful colleagues blabbed to school safety agents.
She was taken to the 68th Precinct stationhouse, where she got a lawyer and clammed up, police sources said.
Hours later, she was charged with making terroristic threats, a felony that carries up to five years in prison.
“This woman talked about pulling a Columbine and we take these threats very seriously,” a police source said, referring to the 1999 Colorado school massacre that left 13 dead.
“She made terroristic threats.”
Milo made the threats earlier in the week, telling at least two other teachers she intended to come to school armed and “settle some scores” and “do what needs doing,” a source said.
It was unknown if Milo owned any weapons, but police were seeking warrants to search her Staten Island home and her computer, sources said.
Teachers told cops Milo had a short fuse, a law enforcement source said.
“She would get angry and run off at the mouth. Whether that would translate into real action – no one was willing to take the chance,” the source said.
“Her husband was ex-military, so there was a concern that she had access to weapons.”
Police sources said it was not the first time Milo had been in trouble at the Bay Ridge school.
In May, she was yanked out of the classroom amid allegations she flipped out in the classroom and hit a student.
“She hit a kid with a ruler on her fingertips,” one Fort Hamilton teacher said. “She was taken out of school for a while.”
A Department of Education spokeswoman confirmed Milo was removed from the school and returned in September. She declined to discuss the details of the investigation.
Several students – who said Milo was quirky but well-liked – said the incident was blown out of proportion.
“Last year we made a sign that said ‘Free Milo’ after she hit a kid’s phone with a ruler,” said sophomore America Casallas, 15.
“The girl was over-exaggerating … the girl hated her and made a big deal out of it.”
Milo offered to pay for the girl to get a manicure when she saw the ruler broke the teen’s nail, Casallas said.
Milo – who makes $75,796 a year – has been at the school since she was hired in 2001, the DOE spokeswoman said.
She’s married to another teacher at the school, JROTC instructor Lee Anderson, and they live in a home in Tompkinsville with one of his three kids from an earlier marriage.
Neighbors said she kept to herself, but was always nice. Anderson, 64, is often seen around the neighborhood in military fatigues.
“I’m kind of shocked to be honest,” said a neighbor, who declined to give his name. “They’re very nice, quiet people. We just say good morning, good evening.”
One of Milo’s students said she was taking the threats as seriously as an April Fool’s prank.
“It can’t be true,” said Aly Bianco, 15. “If she did say it, she didn’t mean it. She jokes a lot.”
“She’s a great teacher,” the sophomore said. “But people are mean to her for no reason. She puts up with a lot.”
“She’s the best,” Casallas agreed.
“We do art explosions where we throw paint at canvasses. She’s so creative and really helps kids with their problems.”
A Bronx pastor charged with raping a 12-year-old girl from his flock turned down a “sweetheart” plea deal that came with three years in prison.
Michael Clare, 38, refused the offer from prosecutors, despite “almost irrefutable proof” he impregnated the child, said Bronx Supreme Court Justice Megan Tallmer.
“He wasn’t interested,” Tallmer said in court Monday.
Clare’s lawyer, Paul Brenner, asked the judge to consider probation instead of prison.
“I would never do that,” she snapped, citing a DNA match between Clare and the victim’s aborted fetus.
Clare – the married leader of the Harvest Worship Center and principal of the associated Harvest Prep school, declined comment outside court.
Authorities learned of the alleged crimes in June, when the girl, who now 15, told her parents and police that Clare had sexually preyed on her for three years.
Clare, who is free on $50,000 bond, faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted of first-degree rape at trial.
Prosecutors believe he may have victimized other young churchgoers as well.
The judge said his preaching days are probably over, though, since his name would likely be added to the state sex offender registry following any plea deal.
“I don’t see how he could continue his work as a pastor,” Tallmer said.
Clare’s lawyer said the clergyman will be vindicated at trial.
“He turned down the plea deal because he’s innocent,” Brenner said.
One prosecutor said that was a mistake.
“This was a sweetheart offer considering the evidence against him,” the prosecutor said. “It won’t get any better from here.”
…My take below…
So you would think that the story is that a Pastor raped a 12 year old girl and that she was a member of his congregation and that he impregnated her. But not today. Today the story is about, Why is there a “sweet heart deal in the first place?”
First off considering the nature of the crime, it is highly Inappropriate to call it a Sweet Heart Deal. That’s tasteless and tacky.
Where is the outcry and outpouring of blacks on this subject? We should see pastors on the television and on the podiums regarding this crime against this young girl. Instead they’d rather defend 12 rapists from Texas because they were “good boys.” They had potential. Who are we kidding?
Regardless of the evidence against this man, what’s wrong with this picture? How is it possible that for raping a 12 year old child you get 3 years? Then to attempt to clean it up and say, “It won’t get any better from here.” They have really done this child a favor haven’t they? Then the comment “The Clergyman will be vindicated at trial.”
Why do I write these stories? Why even bother? Where is the justice in this case of this girl? It’s her color isn’t it? It’s her wanton eyes as a 12 year old black girl. It’s the notion that all black girls are ” Open” and sexual before their time. It’s the old idea that black girls are “loose”. It still hasn’t died yet. She must’ve wanted this. Perhaps as the pastor was preaching, the child was in the audience smiling at him. She must’ve been crossing her legs and pulling a Sharon Stone. The Good Pastor Clare couldn’t resist, now could he?
Principal and Pastor? “I don’t think he will ever be able to preach again, or how could he?” Easily, very easily. It’s no wonder blacks are set back so far financially for supporting rapists and con artists. If he wanted to be, he can be in the pulpit immediately. Why? How? Many black patrons are still pimping their pastors and they are nothing more than whores and drug addicts that need entertainment.
When you choose your man of God over God, then you do yourself a disservice. He should do the maximum time allowed. He should pay punitive damages to the victim. The monies that he collected from his delusional members should be used to pay for this childs education and any needs that she may have. A thorough investigation should be done behind the walls of this church and it’s so ironic that he’s a Principal as well. What a real piece of garbage this pathetic waste of human life is. He has surrounded himself with children. These types always do.
If his members aren’t complaining about this Satan Reject, then who will? See, a lot of times the members will know what’s going on and still sit idly by and do nothing. They can know that he is a whore, a drug user and a pedophile, but to save face, they hide behind God. It’s insane and these fools will bust hells gates wide open. It is despicable. This attorney is a money hungry pile of dung with no morals. This story is an all time low.
If I were his wife, I would be repenting to God for marrying such a detestable thing. It’s not likely that his wife knew what she was getting and of course, no background check can help in these situations. When you marry something like this, it destroys your core and all of your judgments become challenged from then on. Did this man have children? What do they think? This has been the toughest story to talk about because it’s taking all I can to avoid expletives. My attempts to maintain a professional site are going out the window when it comes to children.
How many children have to go through this before stricter laws are made? Laws are already on the books, but if deals can be offered in exchange for lighter sentences, then what has been accomplished? This animal will get out and do the same thing again. That seems to be the basis of all these crimes. Let him out, and let him destroy further. It is a vicious cycle and parishioners won’t stop it, because they are too heavenly minded that they are no earthly good. I better not hear one comment about “Judge Not.” I swear, I will curse you out from sun up to sun down. Any of you stupid blacks who come to this site with your nonsense bull about how this man should be judged by God, don’t you even leave a comment. No one wants to hear your crap. Frankly, we are sick of you and your stupidity and ignorance. I don’t care who your Pastor is and what you believe. If you think this man is innocent and should be judged by God, don’t plague my site with your foolishness. Just keep saving your money and keep paying it out to your dealer/pimp of a pastor and let’s see where you end up in 20 years when you’re broke, and he’s in jail for raping another child.
Anyone of you out there thinking that maybe this pastor refused the plea deal because he wanted to get the full sentence should think about this…let’s wait and see. Better yet, you wait while the mentally and spiritually strong Pray.
Another note, Black people were raped, beaten and abused by white men years ago, and this following the leader needs to stop. No one of the age of 38 would even know what that was like, so this excuse cannot be used. Understanding that the average person has no real clue of what the word Christian means, it should carry the idea that most of you Wanna be Christians are not Christians at all, but more so followers of MAN. Everything you do is hidden behind that book. Your way of worshiping, your way of living and your way of giving. But you have no common sense as to how to follow the rules. Fornication is a sin, Adultery is a sin. First and foremost at least admit that this pastor is a liar, he is a rapist, he is a con artist. What does your bible say about these things? Blacks who live under these pastors are mere slaves who are pretending to be something. They think they know God. Chains and shackles on your feet and now you’re not owned by the white man, it is your own race that owns and controls you.
Blacks who live in this lifestyle of having a pimp for a pastor are nothing more than lambs to the slaughter. They are nothing more than fools who still feel that they need a leader. It is easy to sway a nigger. It is easy to rape and violate them. If I wanted to be a pastor, I could make millions. Why not? There is plenty of money to be had from these unlearned individuals. It’s just like guiding sheep. If you drop something for a sheep, it will follow. What a horrible thing to say about ones OWN race. My blog is committed to being truthful.
You live and you’re supposed to learn.
Lisa Bliss goes out with her son to dinner and she drinks 4 glasses of wine? That”s what the police report shows. She was transporting her 9 year old son home, and she hit a concrete median. The legal limit for alcohol consumption while driving in Florida is .08, meanwhile Lisas consumption was .21. Perhaps this psychologist needs to sit on someones couch and tell her problems to. It’s obvious that she may not be fit to give advice when her own personal life makes headliners.
Most people who have children and they go out to eat, would not inhale a bottle of wine. They would know that they are driving home first of all, and they would also know that they have their child with them. When is this behavior ever ok? Lisa Bliss is assigned to certain schools and she works directly with students. Why wouldn’t Lisa take the bottle of wine home with her, put the child to bed, then get drunk? Why put your child in that sort of danger? Story will follow soon.
VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. — Investigators say a Volusia County school psychologist was drunk when she crashed her car, with her 9-year old son inside.
Lisa Bliss might have thought she could make the two mile drive home from the “Vineyard Wine Bar” in Lake Mary, but she barely made it one block.
Troopers say she had a blood alcohol level nearly three times the legal limit, when she crashed into a brick median Wednesday night. Her son was in the car with her.
In Florida, the legal limit is .08. Troopers reported Bliss’ level was .21.
She told troopers she and her 9-year old son just needed to go out, as they’re in the midst of spring break from Volusia County schools.
“That’s disturbing to us. Because as a mother, your primary job is to protect your children,” said Sgt. Kim Montes of the Florida Highway Patrol.
The manager of the bar told Eyewitness News that Bliss had 4 glasses of wine over 2 hours, and she never showed signs of being drunk.
She failed three field sobriety tests. Arrest papers show she’s charged with DUI, DUI with property damage, and DUI with someone under 18 in the car.
A Volusia County school district spokeswoman said Bliss has worked as a psychologist since August 2005. She works with students at several different schools in the district. The spokeswoman said Bliss is considered an excellent employee.
Bliss is expected to meet with district’s Office of Professional Standards when she returns to school from spring break on Monday.
McFarlane is no stranger to the law. He was arrested last year for suspicion of kidnapping a small child from a Central Florida Mall. However, he was released because it wasn’t clear that he meant to do her any harm. The video showed what looked like he was taking her or luring her out of the mall, however, he stated that he was only trying to help the toddler find her mother. He claimed that the little girl was lost.
His mother was waiting for him outside and so the case looked a little strange. But now, he is facing much serious charges and the judge refuses to release him. This may be a good thing. This young man needs some help and is a possible sexual predator in the making. The girl was clearly begging him to stop and to proceed means he had no regard for her feelings. He acted inhumane and he should be locked away for a long time.
If he is released, he will rape again and that will eventually lead to much more horrendous crime. If he can get off the streets now, he might have a chance, but most of the times, this type never progresses.
Read the story below…www.wftv.com
– A Marion County judge refused to release a teenager Tuesday, who is accused of sexually assaulting a classmate on a school bus. The judge said the charges against 15-year-old Edwin McFarlane were too serious to allow him go free.
Edwin McFarlane didn’t have anything to say to WFTV as he was taken into custody Monday night The sexual assault case has put McFarlane back in the spotlight for a second time. WFTV followed the case against McFarlane after he was arrested last year for taking a child out of a Burlington Coat Factory in Orange County. The false imprisonment charges against him were eventually dropped.
However, now police say the 6-foot-tall, 300-pound teenager confessed to the latest attack on a 15-year-old girl in Lake County school bus. Investigators say, last week, he sexually battered a 15-year-old girl on the bus and the incident was captured on video.
According to a Lake County Sheriff’s Office incident report, the girl was lying down to take a nap on the bus. Officers said McFarlane approached her and unzipped her pants. The victim told McFarlane to stop, but investigators said he didn’t stop.
The report also stated that McFarlane tried to kiss her and held her wrists down as she tried to pull away. The report said that McFarlane proceeded to molest the girl against her will.
The incident report also described that the 15-year-old girl screamed “Stop Edwin, stop!” during the ordeal. The Sheriff’s Office said another student heard the victim tell McFarlane to stop several times, but he continued.
McFarlane entered the courtroom Tuesday morning, towering over some of the court deputies, and was the first juvenile case to be called. His attorney asked that he be released to his mother, but the judge promptly declined the request.
“These are two very serious charges. Based on the risk assessment, I’m ordering you to remain in secure detention at this time,” the judge told McFarlane.
Another detention hearing will be scheduled outside the courtroom.
McFarlane’s mother said nothing Tuesday and his attorney, Natalie Jackson, said little to WFTV.
“There’s a 15-year-old boy and a 15-year-old girl. That’s all we know so until we find out more. We would ask that the privacy of both be respected,” Jackson said.
McFarlane has been charged with rape.
“They are very serious allegations and you take into account that he’s a very large person and she’s a 15-year-old female. She did not feel that she could get up and leave,” said Lt. John Herrell, of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office. “He made his way to the victim’s seat, immediately began touching her inappropriately, she continually told him no and told him to stop. He was persistent and continued until he committed sexual battery on her.”
Sources told WFTV that the State Attorney’s Office was considering going ahead with its prosecution of McFarlane last year when he was charged for taking a 3-year-old by the hand and walking her out of a Burlington Coat Factory. The child’s mother chased McFarlane down and the Orange County Sheriff’s Office eventually charged him with false imprisonment.
Sheriff Jerry Demings took heat for supporting the arrest. But once Sheriff Demings withdrew his support for the case, prosecutors dropped the charges .
Sheriff Demings released this statement to WFTV Tuesday amid the new charges: “These are investigations which are difficult at best and at the time of Orange County’s arrest of Edwin McFarlane in June of 2010, decisions were made to proceed as we did based on the totality of the circumstances. Without casting judgment, McFarlane once again finds himself in the middle of a criminal investigation and I am certain justice will prevail in the Lake County case.”
Neighbors, who didn’t want to be identified, supported McFarlane last year and were .“I was just really surprised, because I just thought he was wrongly accused and I thought he was a good kid in the neighborhood,” a neighbor said. “Obviously, with this second incident, he’s had his first chance and now it’s different.”
McFarlane’s attorney told WFTV she has not spoken to McFarlane since the arrest. He’s being held in Marion County, because Lake County does not have a juvenile detention facility or a juvenile court house.
