BOALSBURG, Pa. (AP) - The chief executive officer of the Boal Mansion Museum has resigned his position as supervisor in a central Pennsylvania township and will soon retire from the museum, too.

Sixty-six-year-old Christopher G. Lee has been jailed since October on federal charges he enticed a 17-year-old girl to cross state lines to have sex with him on the museum’s premises, where students from around the world work as volunteer guides.

Harris Township manager Amy Farkas says Lee has resigned as supervisor. And John Thompson, the treasurer of the nonprofit that runs the museum, says Lee is already off the payroll and plans to retire soon.

The homestead about 140 miles east of Pittsburgh commemorates the Boal family. They founded the Farmers High School, which eventually became Penn State University.

Lee, a Boal descendant, is scheduled for trial in April.
