In view of his record, now known to the voters, Mr. Marcus Scott should withdraw his candidacy for the Liberty County Board of Education before the November general election.
Failing that, responsible citizens should seek out and support a write-in candidate for the post.

Yes cicero, he should, but I am not sure it is in his gut to do so. These kind of people have a very high opinion of themselves. They wear a friendly social mask and can be charming individuals. That is a component of the danger they represent when pursuing a vulnerable target. Narcissism runs deep in these folks. How else can one explain a self admitted child rapist putting himself up as a candidate for a seat on the BOE??!! It is unbelievable!

JimmyMack commented on Friday, Jun 06, 2014 at 15:19 PM

Again: I encourage ANYONE who is against child sex abuse and agree with the position that the School Board should NOT seat a self admitted child rapist TO CALL SOUNDOFF after the letter regarding Mr. Scott makes print. You do NOT have to give your name. If some of you wish to add your name to a letter to the Editor then please feel free to do so.

Stand up to child predators and support the children. It is my position that these individuals do NOT change their sexual predisposition. The only method at our disposal is to CONTROL them and support societies MANAGEMENT of their deviant behavior.

Mr. Scott may have escaped the reach of the law.???? However, he CAN be held accountable via the voice of the people.

Exercise your right to speak out regarding these people. We MUST NOT reward them with public office!

People like this cat hide behind their religion, their self proclaimed repentance, and in his case; 'We all have done things we are not proud of".

Throw in a little of; "this is a race thing" and you have it covered. He has already escaped formal prosecution,and changed a young life FOREVER. Some things cannot be classified as letting bygones being bygones. In most cases out society abhors anything related to sexual abuse of a child. And yes boys and girls, the age of 15 is not the age of consent and a crime was committed. We need to continue to get this out besides the purview of the Blog postings. It might even need to have a formal request for inquiry sent to our State representatives for further review. Social media is king in this day and age. Lets use it to try to right a wrong for once. Go get em Jimmy!

I found this on line. Let us uncover the truth!

So lets get this straight.

Scott started dating a 15 year old female.

Ultimately they married and the union produced a child.

Later they divorced.

Afterward the scorned ex wife reported having out of wedlock sex when she was 15.

Is this in fact the way it all came down?

timeontarget commented on Saturday, Jun 07, 2014 at 07:24 AM

The firing happened after his former wife reported they first had sex in 1999 while she was a 15-year-old student and he was a 20-year-old substitute teacher at her school. They later married, had a son and divorced.

The recommendation for termination came from the minor's mother, who sought some kind of recompense after the 1999 sexual relations resulted in a child.

I'd like to know where the child is and in who's care?

it was ran in the paper a few years ago, marcus scott. all the article have been removed from the archives for some reason, except this one.

Dr. Steve Wilmoth, presented a motion to have Scott fired from his eighth grade teaching position for previous sexual misconduct with a 15 year-old girl, six years his junior.

Though Scott was a substitute teacher at the time of the incident and sexual relations did not occur on school grounds, the board decided to relieve him of his five-year teaching position at Midway Middle School.

JimmyMack commented on Saturday, Jun 07, 2014 at 09:48 AM

The bottom line is Scott dated and impregnated a 15 year old female student whom by Georgia Law was a female under the age of consent. That is called statutory rape. No matter how you cut it. No matter what Scotts academic accomplishments. No matter what Church he attends. No matter what he supposedly has done for the "betterment of students." No matter if he now has custody or shared custody of the child he fathered with the 15 year old student. He has NO excuse and it is absurd to place this man on the Board of Education. It is morally and ethically wrong for him to hold a seat on the Board.

gacpl commented on Saturday, Jun 07, 2014 at 11:03 AM

They did not go after him at first because he was paying child support. He later stopped paying that's when the family went public with it. If he had been a responsible father and supported his child it would have never came to light. The mother never looked for extra money from him. Just proper support. It was in the earlier articles.

JimmyMack commented on Saturday, Jun 07, 2014 at 11:19 AM

@gacpl. Please educate me here. Even if he paid child support or not doesn't the State by virtue of his commission of statutory rape have an obligation to go after him regardless of the family of the victim's position? Is it possible to have sex with an underage minor and the law NOT pursue criminal charges if the parents do not request it?

Thank you. Jimmy

JimmyMack commented on Saturday, Jun 07, 2014 at 12:26 PM

@Sheran. Great job at digging into Mr. Scotts history and revealing his being denied a principal position in Montgomery County based on his sexual transgressions with a underage female student here. Montgomery County did the right thing. The question now before us, is will our Superintendent and Board do the same thing here in Liberty County?

JimmyMack commented on Saturday, Jun 07, 2014 at 12:56 PM

Look at this:

http://www.southeastgeorgiatoday.com/...

Sheran found this one. Precedent has been set regarding a School System firing Scott for his sexual transgressions.

gacpl commented on Saturday, Jun 07, 2014 at 17:54 PM

i agree jimmy, tot mentioned how it came to light the first time, i was just filling in the back story of what i remembered from it. may be the paper could bring back the earlier articles for us all to refresh our memories.

Sheran commented on Saturday, Jun 07, 2014 at 20:47 PM

gacpl Thank You! You started this by reminding us of Marcus Scotts past.

Maddog20201 commented on Sunday, Jun 08, 2014 at 09:03 AM

This blog is filled with haters. “Accept the fact that the Board of Education has one of Hinesville's finest Educators on the school board now. I'm sure; there exist negativity in each of your adolescent years. Let's not forget the fact that Marcus was not a teacher, and was an adolescent during the time he became involved with this young lady; and let's not forget the fact that Marcus and the young lady eventually married; and they have a son together which continue to top the charts with academic honors in Liberty County Schools. The fact that you all are slinging mud, is clear that you despise the fact that a very educationally talented African American male have soared to the top of the educational field, and he continues to be the best at what he does. He is also active with youth in his community. Do me favor haters; check out “Scott’s All Stars Basketball League.” There is not one team in Liberty County, nor any of the surrounding counties that could beat them in a game.” Also, check out his performance ratings as a Math Teacher and now an Administrator, they are impeccable. Marcus Scott is the GREATEST!!!!! Do me a favor, Jimmy, "Go order a T-Shirts, put on the front "Marcus Scott the Greatest" and on the back "We welcome your victory as Board Member of the Liberty County Board of Education." Thank God that the people of Liberty County now have the "Greatest Educator of all, times, and that Liberty County has to offer." The citizens of Liberty County know that he is the greatest, "That's why they voted for him." Not even, racism could stop the citizen's from voting for him, let’s not forget that all ethnic groups participated in this election, and the selected the candidate that is the "Cream of the crop, and Top Notch.” Before slinging mud and looking for dirt, check the record. Romans 2:1
You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge another, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things. John 8:7
When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, "Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her."

Maddog20201 commented on Sunday, Jun 08, 2014 at 10:36 AM

As you attend church today, Jimmie and your followers, have your pastor to teach you the words of God; I will continue to pray for Satan to release you from the grips of his teeth.
James 4:11
10Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you. 11Do not speak against one another, brethren. He who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks against the law and judges the law; but if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge of it. 12There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the One who is able to save and to destroy; but who are you who judge your neighbor?

Don't speak evil against each other, dear brothers and sisters. If you criticize and judge each other, then you are criticizing and judging God's law. But your job is to obey the law, not to judge whether it applies to you.
Matthew 7:1
1"Do not judge so that you will not be judged. 2"For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you.…

Luke 6:37
"Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
Romans 14:13
Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in the way of a brother or sister.

JimmyMack commented on Sunday, Jun 08, 2014 at 17:13 PM

@gacpl. You deserve immense credit for bringing this issue to the forefront of public scrutiny. Adults that seek sexual gratification with minors need constant monitoring. I believe they are genetically predisposed towards an un-natural attraction to children. Hence we have a Sex Offender Registry to keep track of them.

Marcus Scott may have eluded being placed on the Sex Offender Registry but we CAN shine a light on him and inform the public about his documented public record regarding his transgression with a minor.

Thanks to you and Sheran, we have established facts regarding his offence, his dismissal not once but twice now (Montgomery County School System and Liberty), his hearing record by the State Dept. of Education, and the squashing of his appeal by a Judge.

He had sex with a child. He needs to stay away from children and has no business offering himself up for election to the BOE. We need a write in candidate for the Fifth District to oppose him should he not withdraw. Barring that happening, the fight will move to the BOE with Press and hopefully television coverage. I am drafting a statement to send to WSAV and WTOC should Mr. Scott force the issue and the Board does nothing to stop him from taking a seat on the Board of Education.

Maddog20201 commented on Tuesday, Jun 10, 2014 at 12:07 PM

Jimmie and your supporters, what you are doing in theses blogs are considered slander, and defamation of character. Fact: The State of Georgia has a system of justice in place for individuals that commit crimes. Can you check the court records, and put forth factual evidence where Marcus Scott was charged with violating a law of the State, and/ or prosecuted from the crimes that you alleged he committed? The mere fact that unsubstantiated allegations were raised against Marcus Scott, does not lead to him being guilty of the crimes you so boldly allege. I would like believe that the State have competent prosecutors: and the mere fact that charges of the crimes that you so boldly allege was committed on behalf of Marcus Scott in the State of Georgia, failed to make it on an indictment is proof that not even the State of Georgia viewed Marcus Scott’s conduct as a violation of the law. The fact remain, Marcus never committed such crimes that you alleged in your blogs, and your actions are clearly intentional, and knowingly inflammatory, malicious, defaming, and outright slander. Politics exists in many administration panels, but reality is, “If a person, especially an African American male, had committed such a crime, we all know that he would have faced full speed prosecution.” Reality is, Marcus Scott has never committed an act of immoral turpitude in life, nor in his official capacity as a public school educator and/ or school official; and there exist no criminal record to prove that he committed a crime in his official capacity as an educator. Your conduct clearly undermines the integrity of the school where Marcus Scott once randomly substituted, while he himself was a non-degree randomly selected substitute teacher. The mere fact that Marcus Scott dated and eventually married a female from his neighborhood with the consent of the females mother, and just happened to as a non-degreed adolescent, and random substitute teacher substitute at the school and/ or class attended by a female he was dating from his community doesn’t make him a rapist and/ or pedophile of any kind. Marcus Scott, if you read this blob/ post you needs to get a good lawyer.

Maddog20201 commented on Tuesday, Jun 10, 2014 at 12:07 PM

In Georgia, the elements of a defamation claim are:
1. a false statement about the plaintiff;
2. communication of the statement to a third party in the absence of a special privilege to do so;
3. fault of the defendant amounting at least to negligence; and
4. harm to the plaintiff, unless the statement amounts to per se defamation. See Smith v. Stewart, 660 S.E.2d 822, 828 (Ga. Ct. App. 2008).
These elements of a defamation claim in Georgia are similar to the elements listed in the general Defamation Law section, with the following exceptions:
Defamation Per Se
Georgia recognizes that certain statements constitute defamation per se. These statements are so egregious that they will always be considered defamatory and are assumed to harm the plaintiff's reputation, without further need to prove that harm. Under Georgia statutes, a statement is defamatory per se if it:
• charges another person with a crime punishable by law;
• charges another person “with having some contagious disorder or with being guilty of some debasing act which may exclude him from society;” or
• refers to the trade, office, or profession of another person, and is calculated to injure him.
See Ga. Code Ann. §51-5-4.

Wrong Mad Dog. See my comments of the same words you use here but are repeated on the other blogs.

Shining the light on a Public Figure as Mr. Scott now is, with what is already public knowledge is anything BUT what you incorrectly call it. No matter how many times you repeat it, it does garner viable credibility because you claim it to be so.
