Va. teacher charged with touching teen

A 72-year-old male teacher at Alexandria's T.C. Williams High School was arrested and charged with sexual battery following a June 7 incident involving a 16-year-old female student, Alexandria police said Friday.

The student said Reginald Brown, 72, of Fairfax, inappropriately touched her at the school, according to police.

just touching? that sounds rather vague. I don't think the post should report these events until more is known about the severity of the incident.

I agree! You hide the identities of the "victims" mean while the "suspect's" name gets spread all over the news. What if the guy is innocent? Who will apologize to him for smearing his name?

Until a person is criminally charged, which mean after indictment or review by the states attorney's office and arraignment before a judge, leave a "suspect" alone!

If this didn't happen, the paper and other other news outlet that reported it, just blew this man's life. News organizations are to quick to report these sort of things before any investigation takes place.
