CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A Kanawha County principal has resigned after being charged with failing to report an alleged sexual assault.

Media outlets report that the county Board of Education accepted Capital High School Principal Clinton Giles’ resignation on Monday.

Giles was suspended on Feb. 3 after prosecutors filed the misdemeanor charge against him in Kanawha County Circuit Court.

Prosecutors say a 15-year-old female student told a counselor at the school on Jan. 26 that she was sexually assaulted by a male student. Charleston police later charged a 17-year-old male student with second-degree sexual assault.

Giles is accused of taking no action on Jan. 26 after the counselor reported the alleged assault to him.

Giles had served as Capital’s principal since 2002.
