Carl Mosher admitted to having sex with a 14-year-old student at a Catholic school where he works as a PE teacher.
Since our previous post about Carl Mosher, a gym teacher at a Catholic school in Phoenix who is accused of having sex with a 14-year-old student, we've come across new information that shows Mosher admitted the sexual relationship to the girl's mother during a confrontation call.

According to court records obtained by New Times, after the victim's mother had gone to police, she called Mosher -- who, court docs show, met the victim at a Catholic church and became a "close family friend" -- to try and get him to admit to having sex with her daughter.

During the call, Mosher admitted to having sexual intercourse with the girl, as well as performing oral sex on her, in his office at the St. Gregory's Catholic school, where the girl is an eighth-grade student and he is a teacher.

Court records also show that during a medical exam of the girl, doctors found evidence of injuries to her vagina consistent with the story she told police.

According to the Phoenix Police Department, the relationship between Mosher and the girl began in December of 2010, when the girl was just 13, and continued through last week.

Police say the sexual contact between Mosher and the student occurred in his office on school property.

There's no reason to believe there are any more victims, police say.

Mosher's been charged with four counts of sexual conduct with a minor.

This whole thread and story just makes me soooo sad! It's nothing I EVER imagined would happen in our small community. But it Did! Then to have people (family memebers?) BLAME the victime for the Adult's actions? HUH? PUHLEASE GROW UP!!! If it's the Mosher girls it makes me VERY Sad as I DID think more of the family. You WILL Lose your place in the "Hierarchy" of our community. Please go back to when you where 13/14 and think if a man of 32 paid attention to you and took ADVANTAGE of you, how you would have felt!!! This is disgusting that he did it! I'm sorry. I respected Carl, I like Carl, but the whole situation is shocking, saddening and causes a LOT of anger!!!! Grow Up and realize that this IS WRONG! Your brother will do time for his crime and probably NOT be treated well by the other prisoners. Oh Well, Kind of KARMA playing!!! Stop your attacks on the victim and her family, they DID NOTHING WRONG!!!! By the Way, Karma will get you too !!!

A word to the wise...If a Mosher is moving their mouth, trust me, they are telling a lie, creating rumors, or trying to spread hate. They are a very prideful bunch who NEVER take responsibility for their own behavior. I have always been shocked that they can say the things they say and then sit in Mass the next day like they are good people. You should be careful around them for several reasons. Here are just 2. They are like cancer and can turn good intentioned people into dirty gossiping fools. Anybody on here saying bad things about the girl have just been tripped up by the Mosher poison. The boy who says St. Gregory School is F*cked up, it only may seem that way because of people like the hypocrite Mosher’s. Don’t get me wrong they have done great things at the school and church, but they did it for the show not for God. Godly people don’t say much less think the things that just roll out of their mouths. The other reason is because they won't hesitate to completely turn on you. It is a shame that no one has EVER made Carl take responsibility for any of his bad behavior over his life span. Maybe if they would have expected him to be a good, honorable man in the past he wouldn't have gotten himself in this mess. Carl is sick and pathetic. To his sisters and brother in-law who are spitting out lies, just go away. Nobody wants you around because you are vile and full of hate. I don’t know how you sleep at night. To everyone else if you see a Mosher coming your way run so you don't get sucked up by their awfulness. I felt empathy for the family at first, but not enough to just let them spread more fire. It makes me sick to see how they are carrying on.

Every 13 year old in these days knows what sex is, and knows having sex with someone older is WRONG. she probably loved it, and thats why she didnt say shit for 3 months. its both of there faults. he shouldnt be screwing a 13 yr old, and a 13 yr old shouldnt be screwing a teacher. 13 year olds these days are PREGNANT, they know exactly what sex is. if she didnt like it, she shouldve said something. i dont feel bad for her at all. she was probably some skanky little girl, like everyone else at st gregorys putting up a front like there good little catholic school girls. there was an 8th grader there who was pregnant. that school is FUCKED UP and so are the people who go there. i know this family, and there good people, i was babysat by his mother multiple times. this girl knew what she was doing, and didnt want it to stop.

In response to JeffCal@ - Once again, do your research. You said, "We've seen it a million times." Unfortunately that is true and because of that, there is a whole body of research regarding this type of crime. It sounds to me like you need to do some research BEFORE you make generalizations about people you know nothing about or is it that you are trying to protect or excuse the accused by assigning blame to the victim? A simple google search will inform you about the ways a predator deceives, manipulates and endears themselves to a victim and their family before attempting anything physical. They prey on a victim's vulnerability and a family's trust in them.

Just a few facts regarding predators:•Pedophiles are notoriously friendly, nice, kind, engaging and likeable.•Pedophiles target their victims, often insinuating themselves into that child's life through their family, school, house of worship, sports, and hobbies.•Pedophiles are professional con artists and are experts at getting children and families to trust them.•Pedophiles will smile at you, look you right in the eye and make you believe they are trustworthy. By stating "she kept it a secret and went back for more," you only reinforce the fact that you are ignorant about such crimes against children. Predators groom their victims usually for a prolonged time, in order to make this type of behavior SEEM okay. It is NEVER okay...it is a form of child abuse. The laws of our land support this...the victim is not to blame!

All I can say is WOW…placing blame on the victim???? I can conclude only one of two things for anyone who casts blame upon the child: 1) You are either a child yourself, who does not have the mental maturity to see how an adult abused a position of power to manipulate and “groom” a young victim. It is that very immaturity that Carl used in his favor! In time, as you grow and mature, you will comprehend the crime he committed and hopefully be mortified by it. There is NO excuse, NO reason, NO explanation that could be given to make his behavior acceptable. He preyed on the vulnerability of a young girl, it’s as plain and simple as that. As the adult, he should have set boundaries, but instead he chose to manipulate the victim for his own selfishness. 2) If you are an adult and placing blame on the victim, then SHAME ON YOU!!! I ask you to think of any girl or woman dear to you…a daughter, a niece, a wife, a sister, a mother, an aunt, a grandmother, a best friend…put the shoe on the other foot. Imagine that girl or woman at AGE 13!!! If this happened to HER, you would be OUTRAGED! And let’s face it, you may think “Not MY child,” but this situation has opened the door to it being ANY child. NO ONE would have imagined Carl doing this…but the fact of the matter is that HE DID! He admitted to it! HE made choices that will alter the lives of many, especially his own and that of his family. May ALL involved find healing!

I happen to be a very close family friend of the victim and I know for a FACT that she did NOT choose to be a part of this. She is a CHILD for goodness sake. She was scared, frightened. How many of you would try and hide something from your parents when you knew it was wrong? She was embarrassed. Afraid of the ridicule. Aside from the fact that her family is VERY involved in the parish as well, she feared humiliation for all of them. She didn't want any of this to happen. This entire family is a beautiful family and has gone through MANY trials in this past year. I don't know how much more they can handle. Please pray for them and hope for them. As for Carl Mosher, God will have his coming...

NO 14 YEAR SHOULD BE HAVING SEX!! SHE KNEW HE WAS A TEACHER, WAY OLDER THAN HERSELF. NO 14 YEAR OLD SHOULD BE WILLING TO HAVE SEX. GO PLAY WITH BARBIES!

One thought that sticks in my mind is that Carl did this over a months duration, not even counting the time before building up to the initial act. There were so many opportunities to make the right decision, to just have one thought about his two small children and how their lives would be forever changed by his selfish decision (just a simple glimpse of their smiling faces and never doing anything to hurt them), to think about his wife, to think about his parents, his sisters, the school that has been such a huge part of his life, the community, the 13year old girls innocents that could never be returned, the girls family and how he could look them in the face, and the girls mother/father and the complete heartbreak they would feel. This list of feelings that would turn a man away from doing such an act is never-ending. That is to say a man with half a heart. How did he go home at night and look his wife in the face, play with his children? Him being a father himself wouldn't he give thoughts of how he would feel if someone were to do this to his own daughter? These were acts of a heartless, selfish, sick, and twisted person. Put the thoughts away of who you thought Carl Mosher was, because that is not who he is. He is the scum of the earth that can hurt people in the most sinister of ways, he looked sooo many people in the face that loved him and said screw you I am going to do what makes me feel good. As soon as some of you start feeling bad for him, put some thoughts in your head about just how many people he knowingly said F- U. He looked his small children in the face and said I don't care about your lives. He is NOT a good person, I feel no sympathy for the pain that is due to him in prison.

I have known the mosher's for years. this is just really sad . i am glad carl admitted it and hopefully he will have a quick hearing and start his prson time and learn from this. there are so many victims in this starting with the young student and her family. hopefully she will get therapy and be able to get on with her life.the other victims are carls wife and children . they not only have to live with the stigma of having a father who did this but they have to live with the fact that he will not be around for awhile. my lthoughts are also with his parents and sisters. people need to remember this was one person who did this."carl" and not take it out on the victim or on the mosher family.

I worked with carl mosher for two years. I bought him launch, went to his house for thanksgiving. I noticed on occasions he was flirtatious with the girls who seemed to look up to him. I noticed too on the outside carl had a near perfect life, however, thier were days he looked out of it. I assumed it was usually home problems. His family may appear to be nice, his mom and sisters all work for the school, but they enjoyed gossiping about other people and starting rumors some that even affected me at that's why in some twisted way their going to get a huge taste of what that's like, regardless if people think that they were god people, because I know otherwise. May carl burn in this life and the next.

IT IS THE GIRLS FAULT TOO! People act like it is only the Adults fault, i agree it IS his fault but it is the girl fault also. Obviously, she must have not had a problem with the sexual conduct if she did not say a WORD for three months. You could argue that she was pressured but a girl of 13, and now 14 should have enough common sense to at least hint it to her parents!

I agree with Pissed Off. This guy is a idiot scumbag. Everyone loves his family, but why did they not know what he was doing? Or did they? I feel sympathy for the girl and her family as well as the good people of St. Gregory's who now have to deal with the school being tarnished. Carl, you can rot in hell sicko! Watch your backside. I bet 300 lb men wont be as easy as a 13 year old girl.

I know them all as well. This guy commited a crime that was of the worst kind. Teachers are supposed to take care of kids not take advantage of them, what a betrayal of trust! Instead of feeling sorry for him and talking about what a nice guy he is, you should feel bad for the girl who was the victim as well as her family. 13 year olds should not have you idiots blaming her. It is heartning to see that most of you seem to get it.

Aiht I used to go there a few years back, he was a good guy, never thought hed be the one to do this! But I guess you never know what people are capable of! My prayers go out to both families may god be with them in their time of need, regardless of who is at fault. May they find peace through God!

I was checking to see what was going on with this story and this was the first page on goggle have to say, do you think the man's family is really on this fighting with anyone? I can't imagine his or her family has anything to say about this on here? Do you think her family is on here writing about him? get real people we are here just to see what is going on with the case.

I think the Mosher's are hoping their public profile at church and their many longstanding friends will actually believe what they are saying. As a parish friend of theirs, I have to say I am embarassed and ashamed of them. I imagine that one by one, they will lose the support of even good friends, if they continue to spread such horrible rumors about a young girl. Your son was WRONG. I, for one, would love to hear you admit that he DID something wrong and I feel like an apology is in order to the victim and her family. Your son did something wrong. That's not your sin, but his. You don't have to answer for his sins, he does. But YOU TOO are doing something wrong. That is your sin and you WILL have to answer for it. You can't honestly tell me that you actually believe all the things you are saying!!! If so, then you are not the people I thought you were. Shocks me to see you in church, knowing what you are saying while not there. I will continue to pray that you see the error of your ways. You need the support of friends right now, but you seem to be alienating them quickly with your words and actions. May God's light shine upon the darkness in your hearts, minds, souls and mouths and cast out all that is evil within.

Did you know at 13 what sex was and what it meant and the ramifications? I DOUBT IT!!!! You judgmental piece of sh*& !!! I hope you get the help you need. Because your comment is very disturbing, for placing the blame on the child. Are you a mom? GOD help you with that, you NEED IT!!!

Guest

Oh, the hypocrisy of your comment is so blatantly obvious!!! You say the people who go there are "F#$%^&" up, but then you say his family "are good people." Can't have it both ways...unless of course you are a Mosher! Nice try at slamming the victim again, but anyone with a mere morsel of intelligence can see right through this. Don't condemn an entire school...condemn the adult in the situation who abused his position and victimized a child. I don't imagine you will understand...based on your comment, your grammar and your line of logic (if it can be called that), you don't appear to be a person of integrity or intelligence. I hope others disregard the trash you and others like you continue to spew. It's venomous! It is nothing short of evil...I am sure you are making the devil proud. He has a hold on you if you continue to think, believe and repeat such slanderous things.

Wow. Everyone who goes to the school is f'd up! Really? You are an idiot! Yes, 13 year olds know about sex but that doesn't make it ok that Carl took advantage and planned this for months or longer. He brain washed a CHILD!! And this was no fault on her. He had her so screwed up in the head, that's what predators do! Go fuck yourself for what you have written!

Blame Society!! We are trying to make our kids grow up to fast, we are to busy to take the time to give 100%! This week we have 2 kids bring guns to school they are being tried as adults now we call them adults! Come on people make up your mind, you cant have it both ways! If she is called a child where were the parents? why does she need a phone who would she need to call if her parents are next to her? When you give your children the freedom to do what they want the kids will. Sure the man crossed the line he said he did the fact is the parents need to step in and ask themself why if she is a child she is left to make adult choices! I hope for healing for everyone involved we need to keep the mans families out of this they did not do this again it is society that makes us want to hurt them. My other question is where are the parents of these children who are posting on this board! Society again give the kids a computer and let them go!

One person did this "Carl." You seem to understand the situation. It is VERY sad. You are right in saying that people should not take it out on the victim or on the mosher family. The problem as far as I can see is that the mosher family themselves is taking it out on the victim. They are making a very bad situation even worse!! I just don't understand what they think they will accomplish by saying the awful things they are saying. It won't change the fact that Carl committed a crime. It won't change the fact that he will serve hard time. It WILL change people's opinions of THEM indefinitely! Carl did this and the family is not to blame for it. They are to blame for the horrid things they are saying about the 14 year old victim! This is more than just sad, it is really truly heartbreaking. I hope his family will read this and WAKE UP! I can't imagine that there is a priest in the world that would not advise you of your wrongdoing. If your faith is important to you and your community is important to you, you will stop what you are doing. Your actions are hurting an entire community.

Have you ever heard of the word "predator"? This monster went hunting for his next victim. It goes way beyond being pressured idiot! This asshole had an affair on his wife, which was conveniently overlooked by his family and was accused of rape by another victim. Look it up-public record. This man is SICK and WILL FINALLY pay the price! There are NO excuses for his hidious acts and shame on you for blaming a child who was manipulated and brainwashed by this piece of scum bag shit!

In the same vain that the man's family needs to be left out of this, so too do we need to leave the family of the victim out of this. Casting blame on anyone other than the perpetrator is misguided. I suggest you do research on this type of crime. The accused (in all cases such as this) often befriends the entire family, in order to bring the walls down. They develop a relationship of trust with the entire family. This is how they can keep their crime undetected. I imagine that the accused's family, as well as the victim's family share one thing in common...a sense of shock about how this could have happened. A sexual predator leads a double life...this is how they are able to keep the deception hidden. They manipulate not only the victim, but all around them to believe they are something they are not! This type of crime is a HUGE violation of trust against the victim, as well as the victim's family, the accused's family and the community as a whole. While it would be easy to cast blame on society, the blame lies strictly with one person...the accused perpetrator! HE has hurt many people through HIS choices. Resist the urge to point fingers at anyone other than HIM! It is society, however, that encourages us to place blame on someone. Let's simply settle on placing blame where blame is due...with Carl. Leave the victim, her family, AND his family out of it.

If you are a good friend of the Moshers, you may want to sit down and have a LONG talk with ALL of them about stopping their attacks on a young girl, who is a victim in all of this. That's right, ALL of them. St. gregs is a small place, word gets around about what ALL of them are saying...the sisters, the mom, the aunt, the cousins...It's disgraceful that they continue to place blame on a young girl! Kind and loving is not what I would refer to anyone willing to trash talk a child who was victimized by their relative. STOP trying to excuse his behavior! You are jumping on a sinking ship alongside him...people are not quick to forgive crimes against children and you are victimizing her again with your unkind, unloving, and uninformed comments. People are shocked and disappointed in your behavior, even people who know you well! Or should I say, THOUGHT they knew you well. It is just plain MEAN and SINFUL to continue to say or even think such terrible things about a child! Get a grip Mosher family, ALL OF YOU, take a long hard look at yourselves. There is no room for God in what you are thinking and saying. For people who hold themselves up as good catholics...what would Jesus do? Hmm...definitely NOT what you are currently doing!

Jeff Calcott is not my mine number one Guest00... The kid hads problems my 14 year old thinks older men are gross she likes boys her own age. Yes they know what they are doing,if she went out and stole a car at this age or brought a gun to school she would be charged as an adult. Kids are growing up way to fast and parents aren't helping buy letting them do what they want and when. You have to protect your kids that means when your not next to them they know to do the right thing! This girl went back for more kept it a secret she did not want to end her love for him. We have seen it a million times. I'm not saying what he did is correct but you dont get she is a child when she is acting like an adult free pass. This man and this girl need help end of story.

I agree that casting blame on anyone other than Carl is wrong and misguided. We as parents send our children to school and expect them to learn in a safe environment.Again the person to blame in this whole sad situation is Carl and only him. Please do not make the mistake of blaming the victim. It does not matter what she did or didn't do,she is a child and Carl is an adult. Do not forget that. Also as for St. Gregorys I would hope that they would stress this idea to the student body and have professional councelors on hand to explain it further and to answer any questions.Hopefully this will stop these disturbing postings blaming the girl.

Can I second and third the previous comment? I agree wholeheartedly with Guest. As the family of the perpetrator of this crime, I would think they would be apologizing profusely on his behalf...not defending him. I too understand support, but any defense of what he did is nothing short of evil. There is NO defense! Their continued slanderous comments of a young girl, who is the VICTIM in all of this, is beyond comprehension. We are a small community, word gets around fast regarding what you say and how you feel. My opinion of them has forever changed...not because of what Carl did, but for how they are handling the aftermath of it. Get a good therapist, direct your anger where it should be directed...at Carl!

Guest

Really???? A student????? I'm thinking this is most likely one of Carl's ADULT (unlike the victim) sister's trying to justify his behavior. Let's just say the victim had been "around the block" and threw herself at Carl....Does that make it right? Was this not a 14 year old girl? Do you not have an issue with the fact he found a young girl attractive? You act like this was a torrid affair with a grown woman! If that were the case, it would be called adultry and he would not be in jail right now. Carl is what society refers to as a PEDOFILE. No matter how much you twist, turn, change, defend, or contort the issue, IT IS STILL WRONG!!!! It is wrong from a legal standpoint but more importantly, a MORAL ONE.Supporting and standing behind your brother does not surprise me. If anything, I would commend you for your love and commitment to your family. Abusing the victim and her family more than they already have been? This only reflects your selfishness and inadequate set of values. Support is one thing, defending is another. The respect you once held within our community is gone. Carl's behavior did not take that respect away from you, your own comments and actions have. If you have one ounce of integrity, you would stop creating lies about the victim and minimizing your brother's role in this. It is obvious to all that this is far too much to ask of you. You have shown your true colors and lost the support of a community who loved you....Way to go girls! You only have yourselves to blame.
