(Versailles, Ind.) - A South Ripley High School teacher may not face any charges after being investigated by the Indiana State Police.
South Ripley High School in Versailles.
Ed Newman allegedly sent inappropriate text messages or e-mails to a female student last month. He has been suspended with pay since the allegations came to light.
“There has been an exchange of some ‘questionable’ emails/text messages but nothing rises to the level of a crime so it’s unlikely any criminal charges will be filed,” Sgt. Noel Houze wrote in an e-mail regarding the investigation by Det. Vance Patton.
Newman may still face some form of discipline from the school administration regardless of criminal charges.
