I believe that it is very likely that this little girl is telling the truth about what happened to her. It's a shame that the school chose to protect the teacher and punish the victim by forcing her to leave the school, victimizing her a second time.
I've followed a lot of cases in the news of persons accused of child sexual abuse and/or molestation. The accused ALWAYS say they are innocent, until the evidence proves otherwise and they end up being found guilty and imprisoned.
We have two recent cases that stand out in my mind here in Oklahoma. I encourage you to look up the news stories on each.
Robert Yerton Jr., who was a teacher and administrator for the Tulsa Public Schools. Even though many teachers reported to the prinicipal years before that he was inappropriately touching little boys, the principal chose to do nothing and promoted him instead. Now he's charges with four felony accounts of child sex abuse--one of the victims is a male relative. But what happened when a counselor at his new school spoke up about what she suspected from what she observed when he was with a young boy in his office? The principal of that school sent an email to him, to give him the heads up! The man was involved in many youth activities through church and mission work and boy scouts. No telling how many kids he victimized over the years. He has had a preliminary hearing and the actual trial begins this summer.
A more recent arrest was of an Oklahoma City police sargeant, Maurice Martinez, who was a single foster parent for 11 years, with dozens of young boys coming through his home, and won an award for his foster care work. 32 felony counts of child sexual abuse were filed against him plus five other felony charges against him, including threatening a witness and kidnapping. He and his family went to the press repeatedly insisting he was innocent. The evidence listed in the police affadavit appears to be overwhelming. He is being held without bond.
