I sort of knew what it was but decided to check with her to confirm it.
We have just recently found out that a former band director from a local high school has been charged with s*xual assault of several student over a period of years. He was still working as a band director in another town when this all came out.
Granny was a "band mother" when he was the director here. These are just charges at this time but it seems more boys (now men) have come forward since it was brought out.
I am sure it is a shock to many of the parents.

I sorta had a feeling that was what she was talking about. It's the most shocking thing that's happened around here lately.

I know I would feel like doing great harm to him if it were my kid or kids he messed with, but in reality the law has to handle it. But please tell me why in the world the law doesn't allow somebody like that to be surgically "fixed" to where they will not have the equipment to ever do such a thing again? No, he'll be put in prison where he will have an almost infinite number of others like him to "play" with for the duration of his time. The last I heard the list of kids he assaulted was around 30 and growing.

Can't get a link to particular story, but one is something about former band director and then there is a follow-up higher on the page.

What's this guy's name? We had a situation like that in NH several years ago. I know Granny is/was or has relatives from NH.
Sadly I knew this guy when I was in college and he was a great music teacher. Come to think of it, he liked girls, not boys. No doubt it's a different guy. So much of that kind of stuff these days we're kind of getting numbed to it all.

...Den ders folks who like both male and
female. From a small town and small rural
county, so I am over the shock that it happens
'here', but I do get sick to my stomach still.

I remember the band leader in Jr High there.He had those sticks like cheerleader twirls and walked in from twirling that thing like a girl. In 68 I went to Ft Polk La. The basic training graduates were going on.I saw the band had a sargent twirling a stick and tossing it up in the air.I thought..Well..There goes the Army. We are gona lose in Vietnam.
