Stephen C. Eubanks, 67, was indicted on Sept. 10 for charges including lewd act upon a child under the age of 16, exposing private parts and enticing children from school, said Aiken County Assistant Solicitor Brenda Brisbine.

According to Augusta Chronicle archives, Mr. Eubanks was an assistant principal at North Augusta High School and a principal at Paul Knox Junior High, now Paul Knox Middle School.

The male and female students that Mr. Eubanks sexually assaulted told police that they attended both schools where he was an administrator in the late 1970s, SLED spokeswoman Jennifer Timmons said in a news release. Mr. Eubanks engaged in sexual activity with a 14-year-old boy at his home on Argyle Avenue between 1975 and 1977 and sexually assaulted a 16-year-old girl at his home in 1976.

Mr. Eubanks will remain on house arrest with GPS monitoring until he pleads guilty or goes to trial, Ms. Brisbine said. A date has not been set for his next court date.

And I am sure that I live in a country where a man is innocent until proven guilty, as does Mr. Eubanks.

I have a feeling the accusers

I have a feeling the accusers have bein merrily living their lives, until they went broke, or needed some attention, or generally their lives went south. Then they decided to get together and ruin this poor man's life. In the process of that, they have garnered some precious limelight for themselves, and given this man and his family and friends years of heartache.

Here I am ispy. No need for (insert standard description). It's not a story about common thuggery and thieving. If the story is about a pervert or mass murderer, odds are it is a white guy.

I don't think it is a matter

I don't think it is a matter of where have they been or why wait 30 years. It's probably more monkey see monkey do.

Sexual abuse changes peoples'

Sexual abuse changes peoples' lives forever. And it's not considered a popular or cheerful topic of conversation. When crimes like this happen to adults, it's devastating. When it happens to children, it's even worse. It never is forgotten and affects people till the day they die. How sad that people are still ignorant how difficult it is for victims to deal with it, even years after the fact.

First of all if these victim

First of all if these victim was a popular boy who was looked up to there is no way in the atmophere of those schools someone would have come forward back then. During those same times other popular teachers were rumored to be actively involved sexually with students. I think a few actually ended up marrying/running off with students once the students hit the age of majority.

Isn't there a statute of limitations? Charging someone with a crime (other than murder) after 35 years is RIDICULOUS.

Anyone remember all the

Anyone remember all the stories about parties at "Eubies"? I certainly do. 15 years after graduation I got confirmation about what went on. Believe me this is just the tip of the iceberg. Have they looked into the time he was in Lancaster County when he left North Augusta? He left there kinda suddenly didn't he? What about the kids in that group that went on into Education? Are they carrying on "Eubies" legacy? God I hope not.
