ELMORE COUNTY, Ala. (WSFA) - The domestic violence charge against Holtville Middle School’s principal has been dropped.

Lee Jackson was arrested in October on a third-degree domestic violence charge. On Thursday, the Millbrook city prosecutor said the charges against Jackson were dropped at the request of the alleged victim.

Jackson was placed on administrative leave prior to his arrest. A media statement from Elmore County Public Schools Superintendent Richard Dennis said he will “continue in that role in the future.” The superintendent said they will work out a date for Jackson’s return.

Details about the allegations were never publicly released.

Dennis’ full statement said, “The charges against Mr. Lee Jackson were dismissed. This situation stemmed from a personal issue and did not have anything to do with the school system. He has performed well at Holtville Middle as principal and will continue in that role in the future. We will work with Mr. Jackson to determine the best return date after the Thanksgiving Holidays.”
