(WXYZ) - Another adult, a staff member of a local high school, has been charged with sleeping with a student.This time it’s the freshman basketball coach Derek Knoll who, the prosecutor says, was dating a 16-year-old girl.Adding to the furore, it has been reported by that Jack posted on Twitter in 2011 that he would 'rape' anyone who helped him grow his online audience on the micro-blogging site.Shared when the vlogger was 16 on November 11 2001, the post read: 'If you get me to 1500 followers by tomorrow… Most likely rape you though.'Earlier the same year, the younger brother of singer Conor Maynard posted another tweet which referenced sexual assault again when he replied to a fan with: 'I raped her...

My phone had blown up from all my friends and family getting in touch,' he recalled.
He also revealed what happened immediately after he was taken out of the reality show and sent back to the hotel.'I broke down in the hotel once I’d got out. Jack also insisted that his past tweets seemingly making slurs against homosexuals were not ill-meaning, claiming he has many gay friends whom he 'loves'.
