  8. I just to say when my kids started school , you know how they love and trust a teacher, I warn them about teachers, janitors, not to ever be alone with any adult for any reason. More than one school😢

  9. Red Justin Red Justin says:

    Sooooo we have to worry about our children getting raped, molested and murdered? Maybe we should ban pedophiles from school…. ohh wait…

    Maybe our focus should really be into our school system, where our children will spend 20 percent of their lives. But instead we drop them off and never think about it.

    Just saying…

  11. Santa Clarita needs to start focusing on real issues! Like stop allowing sex offenders to move into our communities and work in our schools ! If one of these poor kids was MY KID the headline to this article would be “Mother facing murder charges against coach who molested her child “ and is be happily sitting in my cell !!

  12. Chloe Wolff Chloe Wolff says:

    WTF is happening to the public schools in Santa Clarita? First Castaic (and second and probably third) and now Canyon

  13. He also went to The Master’s College and played basketball there back in the early to mid-2000’s. 😳

  14. Nicole Galdi Nicole Galdi says:

    Did he go to canyon high school Nicole Looper????

  15. Cliff Kodama Cliff Kodama says:

    Sick MF! Good for the kids that came forward to prevent other boys from being harmed from the youth bball program he coaches for and kids down in OC.

  16. Coach also at Starting 5

  17. Jim says:
