Valdosta - A former assistant superintendent for Valdosta City Schools faces an uncertain employment future even after criminal charges against him were dropped.

Rick English was initially charged with being a peeping Tom, accused of peering in a 14-year old neighbor's window in 2004.

He was convicted of lesser charges, but the court of appeals recently threw out a felony sentence for tampering and all charges were dismissed.

English could re-apply for his old job, but school officials say they would have to re-examine his case to determine if it were safe for him to work in a school environment.

His lawyer says finding a new job may not be an easy task.  "Because he's Rick English and because for some reason this case got so much attention, I'm sure it will be hard for him to quietly apply for jobs or quietly blend back into the community," says Sam Dennis, attorney for English.

Dennis says English has many supporters who stood by him and will continue to help him.

English served about two months of a six-month sentence.
