School district will pay assistant principal’s legal fees

The Loudoun County school board will cover the legal bills for a high school administrator who was acquitted of possession of child pornography.

Ting-Yi Oei of Reston, an assistant principal at Freedom High School, racked up legal bills of $167,621 over the course almost a year, reports The Washington Post.

Oei was arrested last August after he was found to be in possession of an inappropriate cell phone photo of a female student, taken by another student. Charges were dropped in March after a judge ruled that the photo was not sexually explicit enough to constitute child pornography.
