A bizarre set of charges and countercharges surrounds the firing of the school superintendent in Meredosia.
Ruth Schneider was fired last week by the school board, which made only references to issues of “character” in their decision to dismiss her.
But now Schneider’s attorney says the firing stemmed from an anonymous e-mail that directed school board members to an adult website where a video was posted that appears to show Schneider engaging in a sex act with two men.
Schneider’s attorney tells the Jacksonville Journal-Courier that Schneider was a victim who was raped and videotaped without consent.
He says she has been cooperating with law enforcement on the case, but has now been victimized again by the school board.
Schneider is reportedly considering legal action over her firing.
