FRISCO, Texas (AP) - A principal at a North Texas elementary school charged in federal court with enticement of a minor has resigned.

The Hurst-Euless-Bedford Independent School District said late Monday it has “obtained the resignation” of 46-year-old Oscar Figueroa, who was the principal of Viridian Elementary School.

Figueroa had been placed on paid administrative leave July 7, when he was taken into custody by Frisco police who say he was communicating with detectives he thought were children. The resignation was effective July 9.

An indictment hearing is scheduled for Wednesday and a detention hearing has been set for Thursday, when a judge will decide whether to set bail.

Figueroa’s attorney, Bruce Anton, said his client should be allowed bail and that he doesn’t anticipate any other charges being filed.
