    Unless I'm missing something, we must have missed Mr. Tremblay. Another one who swears that his home life persona is separate from his teacher persona. OK, then.

    They range from "he's a stand-up guy" to "made me so uncomfortable I quit the swim team".

    West Haven board strips pool of ex-coach's name; David A. Tremblay faces child pornography charges
    March 8, 2011

    "The pool will be called the West Haven High School pool...."

    and

    "....According to that document, Tremblay told state police he had stored and traded the images — of girls ages 5 to 15 — for several years, and that he “knew this day was coming.” Tremblay allegedly told police they would find more than 1,000 images of young girls having sex, and one video of an “18-year-old passed out and someone is having sex with her,” on an external hard drive he hides in a home closet, according to the affidavit...."

    I especially like the comment that says that just because he's admitted to the charges, doesn't mean he's guilty. That's a new one.

    An interesting document from a couple of weeks ago. This is a Defendent's Memorandum in Aid of Sentencing. It's very interesting to read the overview of how the search went down and to learn that a seasoned teacher and coach did not understand the illegality of child porn (according to Tremblay). That's kind of curious:

    Remember, this was written by Tremblay's attorney. I'm kind of shaking my head. I think there's a good bit of splitting hairs going on.
