Sometimes you need a pat on the back or maybe even a hug to get you thru the hard times. But where is that line of going too far? Paine College baseball coach Pete Cardenas apparently thinks that his magical tongue will make a girl feel better, and according to a 22 yo student (not under-aged for once!), that is taking it too far.
Her complaint states that Cardenas “forced his tongue in her mouth” and when the authorities asked why he slipped her the tongue, it reports “I spoke with Mr. Cardenas who stated that the reason he kissed her is because he wanted to console her.” Sometimes a hug just isn’t enough.
College president Dr. George Bradley had endless pearls of wisdom to share, such as “Things happen. Things that you can’t control,” and “When things happen that are not pleasant, you have grave concerns”. Paine students need not fear, however, as he continues, “They are mine. I’m like a parent to all students.”
