Minor change made to charges against suspended McCracken County principal

MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY — A minor change was made to the charges against suspended McCracken County High School Principal Michael Ceglinski to fix a clerical error.

Ceglinski’s attorney, Jeremy Ian Smith, sent Local 6 court documents showing one count of failure to report child abuse has been dismissed.

It’s important to note that Ceglinski is still charged with a count of failure to report. The count being dropped was an “inadvertent duplication,” which means two counts were accidentally entered into the record when he was actually only being charged in one incident.

This is in connection to criminal investigations at McCracken County High School.

He was also initially charged with a count of official misconduct, which was dropped on March 1.
