    Guy with a problem

    WAYNESVILLE, Mo. -- Court documents show a former teacher's aide and football assistant coach was charged with statutory rape after a high school student said he tried to have intercourse with her three times. Each time, the student told a detective, Scott Ballard wasn’t able to perform adequately to complete the act.

    The Pulaski County prosecuting attorney charged the 23-year-old man with three counts of second-degree statutory rape on Thursday. A judge set Ballard’s bond at $100,000.

    The charges stem from information given to a detective by a 16-year-old girl who, according to the detective’s written statement, at first denied she’d had a relationship with Ballard. She then changed her story, leading to the charges and Ballard’s arrest.

    “We went to his residence and he was not there and he could not be found at any of his normal locations. However, one of my detectives goes to the same church he does, and the detective was able to contact him by telephone and arrange a surrender,” said Sheriff J.B. King.

    Lea Ann McFadin (correct spelling according to the state manual), a children’s services worker for the Missouri Children’s Division, notified the sheriff of sexual allegations against Ballard on Jan. 16. According to the probable cause statement in the case, the girl told a detective that Ballard had sexual contact with her on three occasions, after first saying she only had many telephone conversations with the teacher’s aide.

    The first meeting, the girl said, was last Nov. 20. She said she met Ballard at a truck stop at the I-44 exit to Dixon, on the east side of St. Robert, and then followed him to his mobile home.

    There, the girl said, Ballard approached her in his boxer shorts and tried to have sex with her. According to the statement, Ballard continued to contact the girl by phone, and also made contact with her at school.

    “There are not allegations that anything happened at the high school,” said King.

    “We're conducting business as usual in the district. We're focusing on what we do, which is teaching students, and we're asking staff not to discuss the situation,” said Waynesville School District Superintendent Judene Blackburn.

    The girl told the detective that similar sexual contact happened a second time when she went to Ballard's home. The third time, she said, she met Ballard at an apartment complex, he got into her car, and they went to a rural gravel road, parked and again tried unsuccessfully to have intercourse.

    The investigation still ongoing, and so is the gossip “on local Web pages, and some misleading stuff in local papers,” said King. “Due to the extensive publicity, we're already almost guaranteed a change of venue on this case.”

    The sheriff's department says Ballard’s first court appearance will be March 7.
  2. I'm sorry, and the guy belongs in jail, but it simply can't suck worse than it sucks to be this guy.

    Unless you're dead, and that might even be a toss-up.

    I'm watching a Tivoed Maury (shut up!) and a guy just told his wife that he not only cheated on her, but then took their savings for their two kids and used it to get the other woman an abortion.

    I'm thinking admitting that on national TV is nearly as bad.

    How much was he spending on that abortion?

    Well the kids are young. And he's in the military. So maybe they hadn't saved much.

    Maury didn't ask for a receipt.
