Valdosta - Fifty-year-old Rick English of Valdosta is charged with peeping tom. Investigators say he's been peering into a 14-year-old girl's bedroom window in the Stone Creek subdivision.

English is the Assistant Superintendent and Finance Director for Valdosta City Schools and is a former elementary school principal. Superintendent Sam Allen says his employment is pending the sheriff department's investigation.

"We have not yet had a chance to see the warrant that was issued and we'll contact our attorneys and also the professional standards committee to see what routes we need to take from here," said Allen.

English has been employed with the Valdosta City Schools for 29 years.

The school board will discuss his future with the school system at next Monday night's meeting.
