Teacher can't stay away from 14-year-olds

Posted By on Mon, Nov 6, 2006 at 2:29 PM

On June 28, Akron public school teacher Randall Crane swore he'd never touch another little girl again. The middle school music teacher had just pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual battery for having sex with a 14-year-old student. He was sentenced to two years in prison, with the possibility of parole in six months. "I didn't understand how it happened because I would have said I'm incapable of this type of act," the 43-year-old said in court. "I'm very burdened by guilt." But as Crane's parole now nears, it's beginning to look as if this was no isolated incident. Last week, 19-year-old Tricia Green filed a lawsuit in Summit County court, accusing Crane of having sex with her when she was a 14-year-old student at a Manchester middle school. Green is suing Manchester schools for knowing that Crane perved out with other students during the mid-90s. Her suit also alleges that, despite such knowledge, the district still gave him a recommendation when he applied for a job with Akron in 1997. -- Denise Grollmus
