EDITORIAL: School board asleep at the wheel in Cannelton

It’s unlikely Marion “Al” Chapman will stand trial on charges of theft or official misconduct. As the News reported last month, Chapman signed a plea agreement in which he pleaded guilty to two counts of misconduct in return for theft charges being dismissed.

If Judge Lucy G. Coffinet accepts the agreement when Chapman is due to be sentenced this month, the former superintendent of Cannelton City Schools will receive a suspended prison sentence and probation. In other words, he won’t serve any additional jail time.

Poll

Should the court accept a plea agreement with former Cannelton Schools Superintendent Al Chapman, or should he go to trial?
