Huntsville school official pleads to indecent exposure
HUNTSVILLE (AP) — A Huntsville school administrator pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of indecent exposure on U.S. government property in North Alabama.
Ed Win Harris, the principal of the Seldon Center alternative school, entered the plea agreement Monday in Huntsville federal court. Harris, 60, was arrested last July following a sting that resultedin the arrest of 27 people for allegedly indecent activities at Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge in Limestone County.
Superintendent Ann Roy Moore said Harris, who will retire at the end of July after nearly 30 years as an educator, won't face disciplinary action from the school system.
Harris initially pleaded not guilty to one misdemeanor count of public lewdness and another of indecent exposure. In return for the plea, government prosecutors dismissed the charge of public lewdness. He remains free on a $500 unsecured bond and will be sentenced on July 16 at 9:30 a.m.
Harris' attorney, John Butler, said his client could face up to one year in jail.
