MARIETTA, Ga. — A Cobb County high school counselor faces charges of sexual battery.

Cobb County police spokesman Joseph Hernandez says police arrested 45-year-old Frank Robinson, who works at Lassiter High School as a counselor.

Police say a student accused Robinson of inappropriately touching her during an appointment with him at the school.

Robinson is out of Cobb County Jail on a $5,000 bond.

"toghed" her, huh? That's

"toghed" her, huh? That's bad. When I need a battery charge, I just plug in the machine. I think it's cheaper in the long run despite the rate increases to pay for the yet to be approved reactors. Also, if the judge really believes these charges, $5,000 is ridiculous for bond.

If this is a true charge,

If this is a true charge, fine. If it's a false charge, the man's career is damaged severely. Why not keep the details of who and where for official use only until there's a guilty plea or conviction?

Unfortunately for the ones

Unfortunately for the ones that are truly messed with/abused there have been a number of recent cases of "crying wolf". For the sake of the kid, I hope that is the case here too.

Sexual battery among teachers

Sexual battery among teachers has become commonplace. It's our moral obligation to protect children. Not protect teachers.

My opinion is, true or false

My opinion is, true or false someone should get charged with a crime.

Right on, jamesj. I usually

Right on, jamesj. I usually take the side of the kid in these situations, although they have been known to lie. And if the counselor "toughed" the student, he needs to get a "tough" sentence and NEVER, EVER be hired in a position that would allow him to continue to have access to young people.

I agree, johnston.cliff. Too

I agree, johnston.cliff. Too many people are using the system the way it is now to sully people's reputations with false accusations then retract the accusations later, knowing full well much damage will already have been done, even if the accused is not guilty. Reminds me of what the fellow said when he didn't show up for court after accusing Butch Palmer, something along the lines of: oh well, the elections over now.... So you know that was ALL that was about, doing just enough damage to keep Palmer from winning the election.

Child abuse is the 21st

Child abuse is the 21st century witch hunt in this country. You can accuse an individual for a crime thirty years ago and ruin them without a conviction. I know theres a lot of justified accusations but "getbacks" happen. i saw it in my family and it ruined a mans reputation in the small town where he was a minister and an employee of the state social services, Even when proven totally false he was ostrascized,

I can barely believs my eyes and certainly cannot comprehend Bushwhacker's assertion that it's "our moral obligation to protect the children. Not the teachers."
Just what sort of society do these people want to live in??

Bushwhacker, it is our moral

Bushwhacker, it is our moral obligation to protect not just the children but to protect the innocent as well. This man stands accused of sexual battery but we have yet to find out if this the truth. Should he be found not guilty then he has a nearly impossible task of rebuilding his life and sullied reputation.
