    Absolutely disgusting, and good for DCPD for nabbing him. But just FYI, the school is on 29th st near the entrance to Rock Creek in Woodley, not on 19th.

  • This is really upsetting to me. The student I’ve tutored for the past two school years goes to this school. I tutor her through a non-profit and our school year is over. I have no way of directly reaching out to her. I hope she is ok. I’m glad they caught this scumbag piece of feces. I hope the victim gets all of the help and support they need. So sad and infuriating!

  • If he’s guilty of these accusations then he deserves to spend a long time in jail. Glad the police were quick to respond to this.

  • For those of you not familiar with the justice system in the U.S. Arrest does not equal guilty. Let’s let Justice take its due course before jumping to conclusions.

    • +1. Presumably there is some evidence against him, but then again I’m presuming, and therefore I know nothing about the case, just like everyone else posting here.
