Ex-Arkansas principal arrested again in sexual assault case

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - A retired Garland County principal has been arrested after allegedly having sexual contact with a 14-year-old female student he is charged with sexually assaulting.               

The Sentinel-Record reports 61-year-old Lester Curry was previously charged with second-degree sexual assault and sexual indecency with a child after authorities received a report of an incident involving him and the student in May. He has pleaded not guilty to those charges.               

The former Lake Hamilton Middle School principal submitted his resignation on May 26.               

According to a court document, the student says Curry made sexual contact with her again after arranging to meet with her.               

He was arrested Tuesday and charged with another count of sexual indecency with a child. He remained in custody Wednesday and had a bond hearing scheduled for Thursday.
