A former high school teacher who pleaded guilty to the homosexual rape of one of his teenage students will avoid jail time.
Gregory Pathiakis, 26, of Brockton, Mass., pleaded guilty yesterday to one count of rape of a child, enticement of a child under 16, five counts of possession of child pornography and one count of distribution of harmful material to a child, according to the Enterprise newspaper of Brockton, Mass.
I’m pretty sure this is the sort of person we need to have in our classrooms..
Middleboro High hired Pathiakis in November 2002 unaware that he had just left Everett’s Pope John XXIII after the school found he maintained links to racist material on his website. By December 2003, the math teacher and coach was forced to resign from Middleboro for inappropriate communication with students, the district said. Later that month, Pathiakis allegedly raped a 15-year-old former student.
Despite his dismissal from Middleboro and the ongoing police investigation, Pathiakis worked for a day as a Brockton substitute.
Jay at Stop The ACLU, summarizes rather succinctly
When police arrested him the next day, they seized his computer and found what they said was child pornography. He is awaiting trial in Brockton Superior Court for statutory rape and kiddie porn charges.
Quite a list of evidence against this freak. The child porn was discovered after the investigators seized his computer to examine the emails he sent the teen. The rape took place in his apartment. The teen said the incident forced him to leave school and activities he loved and be homeschooled. The boyâ€™s mother told the court, â€œYou have destroyed our child and our family.â€ The man was arrested after the boy told authorities about the rape.
What would be justice for all of these charges? Prosecutors suggested four to eight years in state prison, followed by five years probation. Personally, I donâ€™t think that is enough for such sickening crimes.
Brockton Superior Court Judge Suzanne V. Delvecchio issued a suspended, 2 1/2-year jail term, followed by five years probation. What is wrong with these judges? This is right on the heels of Judge Edward Cashman issuing a 60-day sentence to a man who confessed to repeatedly raping a girl over a four-year period, beginning when she was 7 years old. This judge even said he didnâ€™t even believe in punishment!
Something is defitely wrong with these judgeâ€™s judicial philosophy. Letâ€™s pray that there are not too many judges with a mindset like this out there. Letâ€™s hope this is not a growing way of thinking among judges across the country. The amount of power and responsibility that is placed in the hands of a judge is enormous. They are supposed to bring justice, I hardly think their sentences come anywhere near that.

Tigger and I received an invitation from Lyn to join the fun at the First ever Dog Fashion Tag Party “Oh, and join the fun at the First (as far as I know) Dog Fashion Tag Party at Bloggin’ Outloud. ”
This is the scoop as I know it.. The RandomYak, from the other side of the mountain came visiting Lyn’s blog, and noticed this incredible array of to say the least dressed to the nine, canines.
Where upon The RandomYak issued a challenge with a gauntlet and everything.. so the search is on to outdo Lyn, (who does actually have a marvelous headstart ) in dressing those canines.
wow.. anyway that’s the scoop..
Now here are THE RULESThe rules are simple: (1) Find the silliest canine fashionwear (but hey, if the pic is funny then any pet will do) and post it on your blog. (2) Link back to this post at Bloggin’ Outloud – and other blogs as you find them participating – and (3) ask that people vote for you! The one with the most applause by next week wins. Very objective, don’t you think?
