According to the criminal complaint, the girl told police that Adams allegedly told her “you’re sexy,” “you’re going to get me fired,” “(expletive), you’re sexy.”  He also made remarks about her clothing, and physical appearance.

Assistant District Attorney Randall Schneider told Court Commissioner Alice A. Rudebusch the state has not made any offer to Adams.

"I have to have a conversation with the victim's family," he said.

Adams is free after posting a $20,000 cash bond. He will have a pre-trial conference on April 12. He will also have a bond hearing on March 11.

3 of my 4 sons have him, this teacher is just loved by his students and there is quite a bit of anger towards the girl going around. However.........we need to let the courts figure out who is lying. Sad though if it is the girl because if innocent this man's life is ruined.
