Why was he arrested? Why was he suspended? Should he be trusted with our children? Should he be returned to his position?

ALCS has paid salary and benefits for the suspended, and convicted of crime, principal for the past two years.
What is status of the Education Proceedings for misconduct/negligence?

He was NOT convicted of a crime - it was a VIOLATION!!! Much like if you played your music too loud. Get over yourself

He was convicted, after a trial in a courtroom, of CRIMINAL HARASSMENT. I have never seen a judicial restraining order to away from a mother and children because someone played their music too lout.

If you want to get your facts straight please refer to the following website:

http://ypdcrime.com/penal.law/article240.htm#...

It CLEARLY states:

Harassment in the second degree is a violation

It is NOT a criminal charge! And judges hand out orders of protection like people hand out candy on Halloween.

The woman involved in this "case" is certifiably crazy - ask her co-workers at Allegany-Limestone. She doesn't even do her job there - she is wasting tax-payer money.

Criminal charges are misdemeanors and felony charges. 2nd degree harassment is a VIOLATION. No record, no criminal charge; you PAY A STUPID FINE!!

btw, how is the appeal on violation of penal code going, Mr. McMullen?
Word has it you lost the appeal, even before you stated to press you expected to win the appeal.
And, why did you refuse comment to the Buffalo News?

The only people who are crazy are the people sucked in by the FORMER principal's lies. There is only one person to blame, not the forty some that chose to speak the truth. His actions forced these individuals to hear every raunchy detail of emails,vulgar texts(Hundreds)and naked pictures of himself he sent to people in our community. What a fine example he set, sending that trash through a school computer.
I applaud the individuals who stood ready to do the right thing. I am relieved that he will no longer have an impact on the lives of our children but saddened the truth did not come out so this madness can end.

The "violation of the NYS Penal Code" is not the reason the 3020-A charges were brought against former principal McMullen.

There were four 3020-A charges. 3020-A charges are for professional misconduct or negligence. The purpose of a 3020-A hearing is to terminate the defendant's employment.

McMullen carried the process out for as long as he could to collect his well over $200,000 in salary and benefits while not working......the tab picked up by the tax payers.

McMullen resigned only at the last moment (3020-A hearing was to begin the next week) because the evidence was overwhelming and he had no possibility of prevailing in the trial.

McMullen is not out of the woods, as the charges relate to an Education Part 83 process wherein the former pricipal is still under investigation and may yet, and should be, stripped of his education certification/licensure.

Part 83 charges do relate to immoral, unethical, criminal behavior/acts.

Good riddance.

Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines "crime" as:

1: an act or the commission of an act that is forbidden or the omission of a duty that is commanded by a public law and that makes the offender liable to punishment by that law; especially : a gross violation of law
2: a grave offense especially against morality
3: criminal activity <efforts to fight crime>
4: something reprehensible, foolish, or disgraceful <it's a crime to waste good food>

I would guess the harassment by former principal McMullen fits all four of the above definitions.

I did speak to the gentle lady's co-workers. She is highly respected. She does her job exceedingly well. The also indicated it is not she who is crazy; rather, they are in agreement the disgraced former principal is a sociopath.

It seems to me, che deranged individual would be the one who was subject of the 3030-A charges.

The disgraced principal, Tim McMullen , reportedly is working for McHone Machinery in Salamanca.
He was served with Part 83 charges for his illegal and unethical acts on Tuesday, December 9.
The Part 83 proceeding is to strip this individual of his teaching/education certification and licensure in NY. He may surrender the licensure or go to trial.
