(MURFREESBORO) On Monday Rutherford County General Sessions Court Judge Lisa Eischeid dismissed the cases against former Walter Hill Elementary School Principal Helen Campbell and former Special Education Teacher Bonnie Marlor.

Scott Kimberly, attorney for Mrs. Campbell, released a written statement, "We are pleased with the decision of the court today (Monday 2/24/2020). We believe, and have believed for some time, that the allegations against Mrs. Campbell relate to her employment and should be placed before the school board for consideration, not the criminal courts. Mrs. Campbell has maintained her innocence to all allegations against her and looks forward to the finality that the decision today will bring for her family. We believe this is the right conclusion to her criminal charges and we implore those involved to put this matter to rest so that all parties can move forward in a positive manner."

As you recall, the Rutherford County Sheriffs Office filed misdemeanor child abuse charges against Mrs. Campbell and Special Education Teacher Bonnie Marlor last November. The Rutherford County Board of Education quickly suspended both of them without pay.
