Man with sex record briefly hired by Pennsylvania school

Posted: Updated:

CHESTER, Pa. (AP) - A man with a criminal record for exposing himself to women in South Carolina was briefly hired as a vice principal by an eastern Pennsylvania high school.

Chester School District tells WPVI-TV (http://6abc.cm/2qSB6bf ) that Freddie Dean Smith was hired by Chester High School for one day - May 2 - before district officials learned of his criminal history.

The district issued a statement saying Smith "was only with the school district for one day as per diem assistant principal. He took part in training sessions, during which he had no unsupervised contact with students."

Smith was hired on an emergency basis after the school's principal left and its vice principal was promoted.

The station and The Associated Press were not immediately able to locate Smith for comment.

His South Carolina convictions were in 2003.
