SPRINGFIELD, Tenn. (AP) — Robertson County authorities have arrested three county school system administrators, charging them with failure to report sexual abuse.

Those indicted by a county grand jury include East Robertson Elementary School Principal Karen Renae Fehrman, Assistant Principal Kecia Young and Robertson County Schools Administrator Donna Dorris.

Several parents earlier told WTVF-TV their first- and second-grade children were sexually molested by other children at school.

The case was presented to the grand jury last week. The indictments charge the educators with failing to report known or suspected child sexual abuse.

Ferhman, Young and Dorris were booked Tuesday and released on $1,000 bond.

The school system issued a statement expressing outrage and predicting the educators would be cleared of the charges.
