FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — Cumberland County Schools has reassigned an elementary school principal who was charged last summer with inappropriately touching a child.

Ronald Thomas Parker, 59, was moved from Eastover-Central Elementary School to a job at the school district's operations center, officials said Friday.

Parker was charged in June with statutory sex offense and taking indecent liberties with a child.

Authorities said he allegedly touched a 3-year-old girl in his Asbury Road home in late May. There were no allegations against Parker involving students at his former school, authorities said.
