A Christian Wouldn’t Lie, Surely

Update: He finally showed up and promptly messed up by talking. This is why reading people their rights doesn’t make a big difference, they’ll talk anyway. The LPT didn’t issue a new article, they just updated it.

The Local Puppy Trainer reports the shocking news, the coach didn’t turn himself in

NICEVILLE – Lawmen believe they’ve given the Rocky Bayou Christian Academy coach accused of sexual misconduct more than ample time to turn himself in.

Now, police officers, deputies and even the U.S. Marshal service are on the lookout for the 28-year-old who’d arranged to turn himself in at 10 a.m. Monday. James Laird Seegars, Jr is accused of lewd and lascivious conduct with a 14-year-old and has also been entered into the National Crime Information Center database.

“He knew this was coming. It was not a secret,” said Niceville Police Department Lt. Randy Sallee.

Seegars had told investigators he was only “a phone call away” whenever they needed him to surrender, Sallee recalled. But when lawmen called Seegars, they found he was in Augusta, Ga.

“That’s not a phone call away,” Sallee said.

The accused coach told police he’d come in on his own Monday morning, but that didn’t happen.

Wow, who could have imagined that a guy facing major prison time over a sex charge with a minor wouldn’t just come in to face the music. The guy was a Christian who went to church every Sunday, and everything.

“The guy was a Christian who went to church every Sunday, and everything.”

I believe you’ll find the problem somewhere in the “and everything.” Of course, I could be wrong.

This is why you don’t want schools conducting their own investigations, if there really is a problem the guilty are tipped off and run.

I’m sure he will continue to attend church to “wash away his sins”, and the congregation will assure him that he has.

My concept of forgiveness comes at the end of a decade or so of hard time.

If he was polite he might get put on the line that makes the “I Believe” plates, or, at least “Choose Life” until the “IB” plates are approved.
