The story "Ex-principal admits teen sex" [News, Nov. 22] describes a middle school principal who lured a 16-year-old boy to his home. The story says that the man, John O'Mard, expected to get 60 days in jail and 10 years' probation, and must register as a sex offender. The sex was "non-consensual."
That expected sentence seems flagrantly mild. If anything, the fact that he was a school principal should warrant a more severe penalty than if he had been less educated and less prominent.
