@unknownPDR i wouldnt make up something like that. Its the truth.. The last thing I would want to do is have a innocent man go to jail or become a sexual predator for life. I am in Law Enforcement and I know what would happen to him. As soon as these allegations came about of Mr.Brown, People immediately began calling me.. Its the truth and I feel bad for Mrs. Sigler/ Brown. Thing is she is in serious denial about it, and was back when i was in 8th grade.

Crazy and sad to hear. I had him as a teacher back in 2001/2002 and he was undoubtedly one of my favorite teachers. But I can attest to the fact that there were some odd characteristics about him. Sure he was funny and nice, but I found it rather strange at the age of 13 that a teacher would place the most attractive girls in the front row. I remember thinking it back then, and frequently think about it from time to time. Interestingly, I was curious about his whereabouts and if he still taught at Crestwood and stumbled across this article. It honestly doesn't surprise me. I'm not saying he's guilty; however, I can see how a minor could question his actions, gestures and/or overall demeanor. And yes, he was selective and I say that with full conviction.

I had mr.brown thirteen years ago myself as a teacher. His form of teaching was great. It was the only class i paid attention in. I have known him since i was six years old. My older brother had him as a teacher and a soccer coach. My views are different then my brothers on this. But i think he is wrong 100% i was a "favorite" my chair was the closet to his desk i had a nickname from him. And had a strong bond with him. But NEVER EVER did he talk touch or anything inappropriate toward me or anyone i know. He was a great teacher who knew how to get kids involved in their studies. He honestly cared. One of the best teachers i ever had. Its upsetting how his life has been destroyed by this. And not just his but his wife my other teacher ive had ftom crestwood.
