Principal Could Be Facing Jail Time

An Eastern Kentucky principal could face jail time.

Kentucky State Police say Central Elementary principal Ben Hamilton has been charged with fourth degree assault for allegedly spanking a student too hard. Police say the student's father filed a complaint after he says he saw a four inch red mark on the student that didn't go away for three days.

Police say Hamilton faces one day to one year in jail if convicted.
