Second Texas principal charged with failing to report abuse

WICHITA FALLS, Texas (AP) — A second elementary school principal for a Texas school district has been arrested on a charge she failed to report a case of abuse to law enforcement.

The Wichita Falls Times Record News reports that 35-year-old Cindy Sue Underwood was booked into the Wichita County jail on Monday and later released on $1,000 bail.

An arrest warrant says a teacher found a school iPad that three 6-year-olds used to take photos as they engaged in sexual acts in a classroom.

The warrant says the teacher notified Underwood, who then told parents of the incident but didn't file a report with law enforcement.

It's not clear if Underwood has an attorney representing her.

Another elementary school principal was arrested last week on the same charge, following an allegation of a 7-year-old who was sexually assaulted in a bathroom.
