No Charges Filed After Investigation Into Inappropriate Behavior By Coach At Waldoboro School
An investigation into allegations of inappropriate contact between a volunteer coach and a student at Medomak Valley High School found no evidence that a crime occured.
The Bangor Daily News reports that the investigation by the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office was the second investigation in recent months into allegations of inappropriate contact with students at the school in Waldoboro. Neither investigation led to charges being filed.
The sheriff's office in Lincoln County opened its investigation Nov. 21 after being notified by the Knox County Sheriff’s Office that a crime may have occurred in Lincoln County. Deputies in Knox County were investigating accusations against a separate individual who worked at MVHS.
LCSO Lt. Michael Murphy said last week that “after conducting numerous interviews, no evidence of any criminal offense was disclosed.”
MVHS Principal Andrew Cavanaugh earlier this month resigned after an unexplained absence from the school.
While Cavanaugh was away from school and throughout the course of the recent investigations, RSU 40 Superintendent Steve Nolan maintained that he would not comment on personnel matters.
