ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Monroe High School Assistant Principal Horace Bentley, arrested on two sexual assault charges, has resigned.
On Monday, school board members said they have canceled their termination hearing for Bentley because of his resignation.
School Superintendent Kenneth Dyer said Bentley's resignation will not impact his pending criminal case or the information submitted to the Georgia Professional Standards Commission.
But Dyer said the resignation saves the county the expense of going through the tribunal process.
