David Rangel: $100,000 bond for teacher who says he didn't boink student but wanted to

David Rangel, the third area teacher busted for alleged improper relations with students in four months, appeared in Weld County District Court yesterday, where bond was set at a whopping $100,000.

That's a big number for a guy who told police that while he kissed and groped a teenage student, he didn't have sex with her.
