LAUREL, Md. (AP) -- A middle school principal has been indicted on charges of child abuse and assault after prosecutors say he punched a student.
Forty-five-year-old Dwight Jefferson of Fort Washington was indicted last week on charges of assault and child abuse. The Prince George's County State's Attorney said Wednesday in an email that Jefferson is being held on $75,000 bond.
Jefferson's lawyer did not immediately respond to a phone message seeking comment.
