I finished this book on June 12, 2011
This case is about Richard Van Hook who lived in Caseyville, IL. He was a sixth grade school teacher. He was married to a registered nurse and had two children.
For years in the 70s and 80s he sexually abused his female students. In January of 1982 the story found its way to authorities that FINALLY believed something was very wrong with this star teacher.
His victims ranged in age from 11 -13. No one believed them if they tried to tell their story. Until it finally found it's way to the right authority figure.
Van Hook's jury found him guilty, but before they sentenced him, he commited suicide.
