GREENVILLE, N.C. - A South Central High School assistant principal charged with simple assault has been found not guilty.

44 year old Greg MacDaid was accused of assaulting a student on November 13, 2013.

MacDaid was found not guilty during a January 10 trial in Pitt County District Court. MacDaid had been suspended with pay since November 22. He was reinstated and returned to work at South Central High School on Monday.

He's been with the district since August 1991. MacDaid has no previous disciplinary issues on file.

Pitt County Schools released for the following statement about the matter:

“Any charges regarding an alleged assault in the Pitt County School System are alarming and such accusations receive immediate attention from district officials. Mr. MacDaid has been a respectable employee of Pitt County Schools for years, and the district worked closely with all parties involved during this process to ensure that he received a fair trial. Judge DeSoto made his decision of not guilty based on the evidence presented, and we are excited to have a quality administrator back in the district’s largest high school.”
