ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Criminal charges have been dropped against the former principal and assistant principal of a St. Paul school who were accused of failing to report a custodian’s alleged sexual misconduct against a student.

A Ramsey County judge on dismissed the charges against Beth Behnke (BEHN’-kee) and Craig Guidry (GIH’-dree), former administrators at Linwood Monroe Arts Plus School. The judge says in orders released Tuesday that they had no reason to suspect the custodian acted with sexual intent when he smacked an eighth-grade boy’s buttocks in the lunchroom.

Behnke and Guidry were charged with one count each of misdemeanor failure to report the maltreatment of minors. The charges followed investigations into the custodian’s alleged misconduct.

The custodian has since resigned and is charged in several child sex cases in Ramsey County.
