Were you present the entire

Were you present the entire time that your children were in the class, or did you drop them off?

don't jump to conclusions......

The young lady making these statements has a moraly questionable past and is allowed total "freedom" by her caretakers. I for one do not believe this story, knowing the source. I'd urge all to reserve judgement.

DON'T JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS.....

That is so true. If it was so bad over there why did all u parents keep your kids in there.. was it more important for u to have your kids in the best dance group ever so u knowingly subjected your child to this..give me a break..let step up and take some responsibility PARENTS....

How do you even know who the

How do you even know who the child is if the name hasen't been released.
Even if he/she is given total freedom and has (according to you) a questionable past, why should she not report it ?

Attn: guestm677

I know this because I have children who have danced with Jamie Watson for years. I know him well.

If ANY child is put into a compromising situation by an adult, YES they should report it as quickly as they can. However....knowing the source of the story being told here, I can do nothing but question it. The child in question has already gone above and beyond the call of showing anyone and everyone that she is untrustworthy.

I ask nothing but to reserve judgement until the truth comes out. This poor guy has already been convected in the court of public opinion.

Honestly....

Honestly I think until the media releases more information that we shouldn't assume the worse in the situation. I am in no way stating that he IS innocent, however it is possible for people to make things up. He has been very successful in his business and his family is a well respected family in the area. I think they deserve the respect during this time.

If he is guilty, then shame on him. He will have single handedly ruined a family business that was passed down from his father as well as ruined his family.

I for one hope it's a big misunderstanding of sorts...

Why can you not say he is

Why can you not say he is innocent?

In the United State of America, one is presumed innocent until proven guilty, right?

Is this the United State of America?

I can not say that he is

I can not say that he is innocent because I am not him nor am I God. I hope with every being in me that he is innocent. Would I trust him to teach my daughter dance? ABSOLUTLEY! In fact I already have!

And yes in the US you are innocent until proven guilty, something MANY of the other posters need to take into consideration instead of assuming and calling names to a person that chances are they never knew!

Just Sayin'

I totaly agree with the

I totaly agree with the first comment listed, Sometimes kids do tell things that are not true when they are not happy with what they want. Please people, this is a wonderful family that needs and deserves your respect unless proven guilty! I am sure this is just a misunderstanding, let's wait and see!

He has a smirk on his

He has a smirk on his mugshot. Really? Awful just awful that he was an owner of a dance studio with access to all children.

He did win dancing with the brunswick stars. His win should be revoked !

Guilt

Since he has been arrestd we know he is guilty because the police do not arrest innocent people. He should be sent on to Central Prison. Really no need for a trial because he was arrested.

YOU ARE JUST AN IDIOT FOR

YOU ARE JUST AN IDIOT FOR MAKING THAT STATEMENT!!!! POLICE DO ARREST INNOCENT PEOPLE.... YOU ARE CRAZY!!!!

I am guessing you are his

I am guessing you are his dumb wife or that creepy pervert.
You should be ashamed of yourself..

READ THE UPDATED ARTICLE ON

READ THE UPDATED ARTICLE ON THIS NEWS WEBSITE... IT CLEARLY STATES THAT THEY DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH STAFF TO CHECK THINGS OUT BEFORE THEY MAKE ARREST... SO SAD WHEN WE PAY SUCH HIGH TAXES AND YOU CAN RUIN A PERSON LIFE ON FALSE PRETENSE. IT SAYS THEY ARREST AND THEN SEE IF THERE IS ENOUGH EVIDENCE TO BUILD A CASE!!!! I REALLY DO NOT THINK THIS WILL GO ANYWHERE.... JUST WAIT AND SEE!!!

I realize that you are being

I realize that you are being sarcastic. I don't know why others cannot.

So...using your logic

So...using your logic Guest1022, we have no need for judges, juries or even courtrooms because anyone who gets arrested should just be assumed guilty. no offense but that really is'nt using any logic at all.

Inaccurate

That is actually inaccurate. Just because you are arrested does not make you guilty. A person CAN be arrested for an ALLEDGED claim.
Happens all the time. It is not a sign of a weak system, but a safe measure.

THE COPS

do not arrest innocent people??? What rock have you been living under...you are beyond stupid.

WHAT??!!

Innocent people are arrested all the time, I hope you were being sarcastic.

Do you people..

Do you people not recognize sarcasm at all?

Sorry...

Sorry if i failed to realize that crimes against children were something to be sarcastic about. I personally take these issues very serious, but i guess everybody's different.

um yes he did win the

um yes he did win the Dancing with the Brunswick Stars. He was the overall winner. I just saw his commercial for his dance studio on tv. That should be taken off and his winning should be revoked.

Disgusting !

Ummmm. Didn't he win Dancing

Ummmm. Didn't he win Dancing WithThe Stars in the fundraiser for Brunswick Comm college?? What a winner!!!

No

No and he apparently lost revolutions rendezvous as well...

yes

He and his partner did win the Brunswick Dancing with the stars

Yes he did win Dancing with

Yes he did win Dancing with the Stars..... UNFORTUNATELY

He has not been convicted of

He has not been convicted of anything, yet. Children lie a lot when they don't get their way. Let's wait and see how it turns out.

He has not been convicted of

He has not been convicted of anything, yet...true. I just hope the others who have been hurt by this jerk over the last 20 years are brave enough to come forward and have him convicted.

Does anyone know what was

Does anyone know what was actually done? Was it inappropriate touching, hugging, ext????

Not quite

Need to see that sexual act is defined as anything greater than touching but less than intercourse. (things oral in nature, for example). If the charge was rape, it would be First degree rape of a minor, not sexual offense/sexual act.
