Vermont School Officials Cited
The principal and superintendent of a Vermont school have been cited into court on charges of failing to report child abuse and neglect of duty by a public officer.
Vermont State Police say the Department of Children and Families received a report in May about a Danville High School student reported to have been inappropriately touched by a Danville School teacher.
Police say the incident was reported by principal Noah Noyes, who told superintendent Martha Tucker.
But police say neither reported it to the DCF within 24 hours as required by law.
Tucker's lawyer says the superintendent will fight the charge. He said the allegations of misconduct were immediately investigated by the school and found to be unsubstantiated. Noah did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.
