Charge against former Statesboro High principal dismissed
Not sufficient evidence to convict on failure to report child abuse charge
Dr. Martin "Marty" Waters
Bulloch County State Court Judge Gary Mikell dismissed a case against former Statesboro High School Principal Dr. Martin "Marty" Waters just before the trial was scheduled to start Monday. Mikell ruled the case, in which Waters was charged with failure to report child abuse, dismissed after Bulloch County Solicitor-General Joey Cowart recommended the motion to dismiss, stating that there was not enough evidence to earn a conviction. Following the arrests of two assistant coaches in separate cases in which each was accused of sexual misconduct with a female student, Waters was charged with failure to report the alleged abuse in a timely and proper manner.
