The Dougherty County School System Interim Superintendent, Dr. Butch Mosley, is living up to his no-nonsense reputation.
Dr. Mosley has suspended South Georgia Regional Achievement Center Principal Dr. John Davis for allowing 33-year-old Grady Alexander O'Neal to volunteer at his school without a background check.
O'Neal was later arrested on child molestation charges involving a student at the school. Had a background check been completed, the results would have shown O'Neal was not fit to work with children.
Dr. Mosley also suspended Monroe High assistant principal, Willie Presley, for not following testing protocol.
"It's all about accountability, following directions, following policy, being good at what you do and brining reward to the children of this school system in terms of good service," said Dr. Mosley.
Dr. Davis received a 12 day suspension without pay and will be able to return to his current position.
Presley received a 5 day suspension without pay and will be moved to a different position at a different school.
