FREEPORT, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) –– In Nassau County, there is disgust and dismay following the arrest of a middle school principal.
John O’Mard, the principal of J.W. Dodd Middle School in Freeport, was arraigned Wednesday afternoon on four counts of criminal sexual act in the third degree.
O’Mard, 44, is accused of having sex with a teenager he met online, Nassau County police said. He hid from the media after pleading not guilty and being released on bail that was set at $10,000 bond or $5,000 cash.
A supporter said that he had no idea about the age of his sex partner, CBS 2’s Jennifer McLogan reported.
