Waters pleads not guilty

 Martin Gregory "Marty" Waters Martin Gregory "Marty" Waters Last month former Statesboro High School principal Dr. Marty Waters was arrested and charged with misdemeanor failure to report sexual abuse at the school in a timely manner. Monday in Bulloch State Court his attorney, Dan Snipes, entered a not guilty plea and requested a jury trial. Waters was not present.




   The charges stem from two incidents at the school in which coaches Jeffrey Tyler Crowder and Luke Edward Parks were charged in separate incidents with felony sexual assault of a child by someone in a supervisory position. The two are accused of having sexual contact with female students at Statesboro High School. Police began an investigation into the actions in April.



   Police investigators said after Waters learned of the incidents he failed to report them to police in sufficient time as required by Georgia law.  Waters was placed on administrative leave by School Superintendent Charles Wilson and later the Board of Education failed to renew his contract.




   A trial date has yet to be set. Since the charge against him is a misdemeanor he will face jury of just 6 people.
