Melvin Gabriel Flemings 22, was a popular basketball coach at El Camino High School in Sacramento.  For nearly four months he worked closely with  parents and their children at the high school.

In Febuary, he was arrested on suspicion of misconduct with a student at the school.  Many outraged parents and students,believed in him, appearing in mass at his initial hearing.  With one emotional parent saying “He’s the type of adult you want your child to spend time with”  He has shown nothing but respect for the team and their parents.” calling him a role model, support was large,  on local newscast mothers tearfully shouted foul!  “there was no way this fine young man would do this

Yesteday, he was re-arrested as six other young men have come forward.

Mr Flemings gained the trust of the victims.     The sexual contact usually happened at his home and many of the events were filmed.

Melvin Gabriel Flemings coached other children throughout Sacramento.   The  children, ranging in age from 14 to 17  has come forward, bringing the total  to seven.  There are some in the Sacramento Sheriff’s department believe there could be more children.

The new alligations will have a chilling effect on all the people he has come in contact with. In this age of instant media where most of the news is negative, it is difficult to trust.   They believed in the young man.

Every parent who’s child has come in contact with Mr Flemings  will look at their child and wonder, some may ask and others blaming themselves may not want to know.

The alligations may not be true, Mr Flemings could be innocent.

However, from this day forward, Melvin Gabriel Flemings has forever altered the trust of parents and children who once believed in him.

Moved to the Big Tomata in the nineties from San Francisco. No Suburbs for me with its single colored houses and lawns and the excitement of pulling out my trash can once a week. I'm a CityFella , a part time New Yorker. I'm happiest in the Center City where people the streets and people are alive. I'm still waiting to buy a 34th floor condo somewhere downtown/Midtown with a nightclub. "Hurry I'm old" My politics are somewhere in the middle with a needle that constantly moves. I'm too liberal to be a Republican and too conservative to be a Democrat. Everything interests me . I've come to love Sacratomato, Its a nice town in cheap sensible shoes .
