Blown To Bits

Smoking Text Messages

Wednesday, December 31st, 2008 by Harry Lewis

A local high school football coach seems to have gotten more than a bit carried away with his relationship to a fifteen-year-old student at the school. He is now up on statutory rape charges, his wife is divorcing him, etc.

The “bits” angle here is that he sent the girl more than 500 text messages in a single month. Now that’s less than 20 per day, which between 15-year-olds wouldn’t necessarily be a huge number. But from a 44 year old man who must have known at some level that what he was doing was inappropriate, it’s hard to imagine that he didn’t realize that he was leaving tracks every time.

I suppose that once he got started, he may have figured that a few more messages wouldn’t make matters any worse.

Apparently her father just picked up her cell phone and saw the messages.
