CORBIN, Ky. (AP) - Whitley County’s school superintendent says the county high school’s athletic director is on unpaid leave after being charged with rape in Baltimore.

The Times-Tribune (https://bit.ly/1jutPnV ) reports Michael Campbell, who has been athletic director since leaving the football team after the 2005 season, was charged with assault, rape and sexual offense and jailed in Baltimore on Jan. 22.

School Superintendent Scott Paul said Campbell was placed on unpaid leave effective Jan. 22 after school officials learned of the charges Thursday.

One of Campbell’s defense attorneys, Paul Croley, said Campbell denies criminal wrongdoing and he expects his client to be cleared. Croley said the charges are based on allegations of one person and that more details will emerge.

Campbell, who remained jailed, is to appear in court Tuesday for a preliminary hearing.
