Valdosta -- A former elementary school principal and Valdosta public school official who spent time in jail, has now had charges against him dropped.
Rick English was initially charged with being a peeping Tom, accused of peering in a 14-year old neighbor's window.
The girl's father set up a camera that took these pictures of English who claimed he was looking for his cat. In October 2005, English was convicted of criminal tresspass and attempt to tamper with evidence.
His lawyer says the court of appeals recently threw out the felony sentence for tampering, and the charges were dropped. English served nearly two months of a six-month sentence.
