A St. Louis elementary school principal has been charged with failing to report child abuse allegations. Patrick Henry Elementary School Principal Lloyd Washington surrendered to police Thursday. He was released on his promise to appear in court.

Beine is the former priest who worked as a counselor in the St. Louis Public Schools from 1991 until this Spring. He was fired after the district learned theArchdiocese of St. Louis had paid 110-Thousand dollars in the 1990s to two men who alleged that Beine molested them 30 years ago. Prosecutors say Washington is required to report such allegations.
