    TMJ 4: Former Messmer teacher faces sentencing (Dec 30 2013)

    If the mother of one of those students has her way, the sentence will be significant. The letters in this folder are written from the heart. Kathi Rodgers will give them to the District Attorney's office on behalf of her son, and his friend. "I have letters that people mailed from out of state - relatives that don't live here, just so they can let it be known that you just can't touch children,” explains [the mother]. “The crime that [Megan Garland] committed is just horrible. She needs to pay for it ... I want the judge to take a look at what everyone's saying in these letters and realize that it's not just about the crime. There are victims and this is going to be lifelong," expresses [the mother].
