The Chester Middle School principal will not be facing criminal charges after he entered the home of two students without their parents' permission after they called out sick.
Police say that there is not enough evidence to prove that principal Ernest Jackson and a school psychologist entered the family's home without permission. Investigators also claim that statements made by family members of the students don't match up.
The school board is expected to review the matter sometime this week. Jackson's attorneys tell News 12 that they will fight the disciplinary charges being filed against Jackson by the school district, and thanked parents for their support.
