Goodpasture instructor to face rape charges

Monday, June 21, 2010 at 11:45pm

A 22-year-old high school drum line instructor is due in court Tuesday afternoon to face statutory rape charges for an alleged affair with a 14-year-old female student.

Police arrested Jonathon Doyle Mann on May 28 on two counts of statutory rape by an authority figure and one count of sexual battery. According to police, the illicit relationship developed over a period of several months after Mann met the girl while he worked as a drum line instructor at Goodpasture High School.

Sexual contact between the two occurred in the school parking lot and hallways after hours, according to police, but the statutory rape offenses allegedly happened at Mann’s apartment.

Police secretly recorded a telephone call during which they said Mann admitted to the incidents, which he later denied.

The investigation began after the victim’s parents contacted police after meeting with school officials.

You don't understand at all.

We only promised to keep your daughters away from negroes at our Christian school.

He was only tutoring her on the efficacy of opposite relations, "as between a man and a woman" trying to keep her from becoming a lesbian biker chick.

Now do you get it?

So this was all about 'relations' between negroes and lesbians?
I totally didn't get it!

HokeyPokey,

Where in this article does race come into play? According to the previous article's photo, the instructor is white. The girl is 14 so her identity is protected. Besides, why in the hell would race even come into play?

Can you stay on topic and make a coherent opinion?

Can't you see that the Christian School was true to its word?

No scary negroes around to molest the elders' daughters.

Dear HokeyPokey,

You seem to believe christians are also racists. I'm not quite sure how you reached that conclusion. There are ACTUALLY some christian people who are ALSO members of the negro race, and SOME of them have good jobs and send their children to private schools. (Stereotyping like yours is NEVER honest or helpful!)

In my experience, a large number of the parents who send their children to a private christian school do so to avoid the "secular humanism" brainwashing rampant in our public schools.

So far as inappropriate sexual relations...it happens among all the races and ideologies. You obviously don't understand the truth about christians. They are not perfect. But they are being "perfected" in the eyes of God by their faith in Jesus Christ. There really is a difference. (If they could be perfect, they wouldn't need Jesus, who was the ONLY perfect human who ever lived.)

You seem to have a bitter heart, and I, as a christian, will pray for you; specifically your anger and bitterness.

Well said, koolbass.

Nicely put, koolbass. Unfortunately, your use of words larger than one or two syllables will only serve to confuse and dumbfound HokeyPokey.

And y'all just keep feeding HP's pleasure at getting your goat, regardless of the inane and deliberately inflamatory remarks.

koolbass, do your eyes roll back in your head when you start witnessing?

By: Cookie47 on 6/22/10 at 1:06

HokeyPokey, do horns grow out of your head when you put down Christians? You shouldn't put down something you obviously don't understand.

don't feed the trolls.

Hokey Pokey.......Whatever Goodpasture does or stands for is far better than being subjected to the underclass that cover the public schools like a plague.

By: HokeyPokey on 6/23/10 at 5:19

guys, trolls drop bon mots and move on.

This girl stays put. coolbass, you didn't do such a good job analyzing who I am and what I know but let me point out that you and cookie appear to share the same belief that all christians are the same and I clearly don't understand them.

So I suppose that means they're all pedophile priests, hmmm>

By: Cookie47 on 6/23/10 at 8:17

I accordance with what HokeyPokey said, I suppose she and all other trolls are atheist and idiots.

"underclass," wow.

It's alive and well here in the South, isn't it.

By: Cookie47 on 6/23/10 at 11:08

It's just the impression I've been given by HokeyPokey's posts but she sounds like a very angry black woman who's an atheist. She knows nothing of God except only that she doesn't believe in Him. Since Goodpasture is a Christian school, she's decided to attack the school and interject her disbelief of God as well as racism because of her "blackness." It's become the new fade to call someone who disagrees with you a racist.

HokeyPokey wants to make the situation in this article about race when we know the teacher is white but have no idea what color the girl is due to her age. It doesn't matter what the race is of either person. What does matter is the teacher broke the law. If proven guilty, he should do the time.

Now, HokeyPokey, since the article made no reference to color, can we keep this forum on topic - the rape of a student by a teacher/instructor/authority figure? If you can't do anything more than get mad and lash out due to your blackness or disbelief in God, save it for a more appropriate article or forum. This one isn't it.

It should be noted that the accused was not hired by the school but was volunteering. Perhaps the school should run background checks on volunteers as well as staff.
