Original story:

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Mount Vernon Middle School Principal Scott Shipley is accused of failing to report alleged sexual misconduct involving a teacher’s aide.

According to court documents, Shipley faces a misdemeanor charge of failure to make report. His initial hearing is May 18.

The charges come after an investigation regarding former teacher’s aide Kisha Nuckols. Nuckols is accused of having sex with multiple students and sending sexually-explicit photos of herself to students. She faces two counts of child seduction (level 5 Felony), one count of child seduction (level 6 Felony) and one count of dissemination of matter harmful to minors (level 6 Felony).

According to court documents, Shipley first learned of these allegations on March 12 when a high school guidance counselor told the middle school principal about a “rumor” of the existence of inappropriate photos sent from Nuckols to a high school student.

Court documents say the middle school principal told the assistant high school principal about the rumors on March 29, which is when police got involved.
