High School Principal Under Investigation

Photos posted on a well known web site lead to the investigation of an eastern Kentucky high school principal.

Attorney General Jack Conway’s office along with the Cabinet for Health and Family Services is looking into Hazard High School Principal Donald "Happy" Mobelini.

The investigation comes after photos of him surfaced on the website facebook.

The pictures show him taking his daughter and four of her friends to a rock concert in Cincinnati.

The girl's, ages 16 to 17, are seen drinking and smoking in Mobelini's presence.

He told us he had no idea what the girl's were doing behind his back.

The four girls told us they hid the alcohol from Mobelini.

The principal told us at Hazard's Football Game that he is fully cooperating with the investigation.

Hazard Superintendent Sandra Johnson did not return our calls for comment, but she told the Herald Leader no action will be taken against Mobelini because the incident did not happen on school property and was not a school function.

Mobelini is also a Hazard City Commissioner.

He was criticized earlier this year after police caught students drinking on the school's football field not long after he left them.
