School Principal Accused of Lewd Conduct in Forest Park

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) — The principal of Point Elementary school in the Mehlville School district is accused of lewd conduct in Forest Park.

James E. Walters, 49, was issued a summons by a park ranger for the alleged incident on Friday afternoon, March 16.

The citation says Walters was in his car, a green Mazda, parked near Concourse Drive and Mckinley .

“I observed Walters grab his genitals while talking to a person in his vehicle who later confessed to what was happening,” the park ranger wrote.

Walters is scheduled to appear in court to answer the charge on April 24.

The Mehlville School district superintendent has issued a statement stressing that the allegations don’t involve school property or a student. The statement says the principal disputes some, if not all, of the allegations. But the district says the principal won’t return to Point Elementary unless and until the District determines that to do so is appropriate and safe for all students.
