    Maybe it took that many agencies to get it all together. Why would this matter, as long as he is caught. Getting someone like this off the street and keeping kids safe is more important than how many agencies it took. Glad they were successful. Now, hope he doesn’t get a slap on the wrist and released because he won a few motorcycle races. He should not be racing anymore because there are kids at those races looking up to him if he wins.

    Pretty sure he won’t be instructing motorcycle classes anymore, at least in Montgomery County. There may be other cases the cops don’t know about when his computer is confiscated and investigated. Hope he didn’t meet any of the kids and hope they all come forward. Being a motorcycle racer and winning races is a good way to get into this slimy mess. Confiscate his motorcycles and sell them…what a jerk!
