  2. Shocked says:

    To all those attacking the victims family,SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!!!Regardless of anything else,it is a minor who was violated!!!!!!!!To attack the victoms mother is cruel,and wrong.this whole thread should be removed.my heart goes out to you MOV and your child.

    1. -bp- says:

      You have obviously not read the entire posts!! There are reasons we are questioning this!! NOBODY is attacking the child and everyone has stood by that IF he is proven guilty than justice will be had…But dotn behave as if your husband, friend , or brother was being accused of something out of nowhere by a woman with this kind of NOT even history because this is her PRESENT life of drugs, prostitution, havong all of her 3 children removed from her custody…that YOU would not be questioning motives!! And if you wouldnt than there is something seriously wrong with you!

    2. Tapping says:

      Time to make the donuts!!!

      1. He is cooked says:

        I agree he should be hung by the nuts.Bottom line 200k bail is high so evidence is there.Just think of all the other kids in past it must of happened too by the time this is done there will be more coming forward.He is done for the next 20 to 30 years.

        1. -bp- says:

          Your EXACTLY right …..this man has worked wIth children for 15yrs!! SOoooo lets see….if there are more..which as we all know if he did this OF COURSE there would be more…than I will be the first to light the match!!! BUT until that happens it must be understood why we as Dsavids family and friends would question this woman and her motives!! We are not dealing with a loving mother!! Or someone who isnt beyond daily lies and scheems…It is a HORRIBLE situition for anyone! But our society is sooo quick to condem because its a woman and child BEFORE ALL THE FACTS are brought to light! And like i said before if he is acquitted there will be NO story reporting on that..this mans life is ruined regardless if its true or not! if IT WAS YOU..than you would want the same…dont judge until the courts descion is in!! ANd if he is found guilty than let him rot….But my logic tells me otherwise.

  4. MOV COME OUT DA CLOSET says:

        Mother of the victim

        idk why we would be concerned this is a lie…SMH

        1. Shocked says:

          Why would this mean anything?

          1. -bp- says:

            OOh im sorry…if a prostitute drug addict was the person who was accusing your family member, friend, husband of something that has NEVER in 15 years of working with children been accused of after he dumped her…YOU wouldnt wanna have alittle more investigating before going against him?? Or you would just say yup he did it f**k him….please.

  6. Tapping says:

    The dirt will all come out. To argue with this individual “Mov” is useless. She is probably high as a kite right now. She still running her prostitution business. From what I hear, she’s been hanging out at bars and messed up and drunk all the time and this is now when the child is here. Instead she should be home with the child that she just got custody of doing the right thing, paying close attention to her child and whatever she is going through. Instead she is sitting here writing on blogs. Put the pills and the alcohol down, get off the computer and at least play if off that you’re acting like a mom. Let the judicial system run its course. “Mov” is better off not blogging because she is putting herself on public blast. As for the child, may God watch over her and protect her.

  7. -bp- says:

    Like you have said he has worked with children for MANY years..people dont wake up at 40 with a new sexual attraction to children…truth will come to light either for his good or yours…prayers for your daughter if she was a victum…hopefully for her sake YOUR skeletons are not her downfall….This mans life is ruined..NOBODY reports on accquitials…God bless your child and the truth..Whichever it is.

    1. Mov says:

      You also don’t get a 200,000 dollar bail with no 10% option ,UNLESS THEY HAVE SOLID EVIDENCE…..NOT JUST HE SAID SHE SAID…..My child is a full victim …….and “SKELTONS” in my closet have zero relavince in this case……clearly……………

      1. -bp- says:

        I am not taking sides at this point…and bail was set a day later so that was reversed…listen if this was your son, friend, husband who after years of working with children has NEVER had an issue suddenly being accused and being accused by a woman who ANYBODY who has met has made a comment on how unstable she is, i would hope you would also want everything looked into before condemming them…As you say i am also un able to wrap my head arouind a woman or CHILD lying about this happening…but IT HAS and DOES happen…so if your a 100% convinced of the truth u have than dont defend yoursself fall back n your justice will come and nobody will fight u on it IF thats the outcome…Like i said before people dont wake up at 40 and start abusing children…So let his innocence or guilt be broght to light…And btw i would think a pedophile wouldnt be looking to LEAVE the job that surrounded himself with children 24/7 just saying.

        1. Mov says:

          Still in jail……..FYI ……no bail reversed…..know your facts!!!!

          1. -bp- says:

            well my bad i was told otherwise…see what happens when u just listen to peoples stories without getting all the facts yourself?? thats why everyone should fall back n let the truth no matter what it is surface for itsself…It would be a shame if our country convicted people without finding out EVERYThing needed to be known…your taking this as an attack and thats truly not what im doing…just not goin to crucify ANYONE before all is laid out…

            1. -bp- says:

              And not for nothing…if u wanted to PROTECT yoiur children you should have been a mother to them!! you just got custody of this child! Do you really think she dosnt have “mommy issues” with you being a drug addict with 2 other children you dont have??? Not that any of your faults n deamons should take away IF something did happen to this girl….BUT seriously did you think people wouldnt question it when YOU are her mother?? So dont say that what u do has nothing to do with the effects of how your daughter has to be treated and how people now have to question if its true!! YOU made this a blurry issue not Davids friends n family.

              1. Mov says:

                Not sure where u r getting your info,but it’s all wrong. I will let the justice system run its course,…..last but not least,no matter what kind of mother you or anyone thinks I am,no child deserves to be raped!!!!

                1. -bp- says:

                  Im done writing to you! let the system do what its there to do! like ive said if its true God and the leagal system will take care of him…IF not than the same for you…But you have nerve posting on these things like a caring mother! people read these thinking you even deserved to be called a MOTHER!!! YOUR actions in life are why were are ALL questionng this!! my own LOGIC tells me anything out of your mouth should be questioned!

  9. Jacki says:

    How many people have gone to the gas chamber and theyre innocent this woman really really wants to ruin his life she told him that if he left her she would kill her self she should have done it this r low budget people and all of this because he wanted to dump her shame on her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Mov says:

      I am the mother of the victim…….I am not sure who you r……..but you have it all wrong………honestly……..i can’t wrap my head around a women putting her child and a man through this……based on wanting to break up……….that is crazy talk!!!!!! I ask that you respect the sensitive nature of this case …and keep your unfounded ,naive ,and untrue “facts” to yourself……….if you r so aware or the story ,and the facts,well you to will have your day in court…….till then!,,,,

      1. Tapping says:

        That’s right Jacki on St. Patty’s Day she called him wasted out of her mind threatening to kill herself!!!

  10. you should know,your an idiot says:

    but she said she was 16……………………….

  11. Frances Cogelja says:

    I’ve known David for years and cannot believe that this allegation is true. He has worked closely with children for years through the Hackensack recreation department and was great with the kids. He is innocent until proven guilty.

    1. nrichard says:

      uh….duh! Where do you think the people that do this hang out? Of course they are “great with kids”and of course they work with the local recreation departments – Have you been under a rock for like ever? And do you think you can spot these people in a crowd? Do you think these people would let their friends, co-workers, family know what they are up to? I sincerely hope you have no children and certainly not a girl because you are clueless!

      1. Mov says:

        So true……..I am the mother of the victim,and I thank you for your wise words

    2. Steve says:

      @Frances Cogelja Correction: If he did it he is guilty now. I believe the phrase you were looking for is presumed innocent until proved guilty.

  12. Mov says:

    A mother is given a duty,to protect,provide and serve,just like a firefighter,you know no matter what,protect and serve…….bottom line!!!!! My heart goes out to all those who r affected by this ……..Sincerley, MOV
