Former charter school principal denies molestation allegations

May 23, 2012 |  1:19 pm

A former principal pleaded not guilty to charges he molested students at a Citrus Heights charter school.

Robert Adams was in court Wednesday morning and entered his plea.

Police began investigating Adams after accusations surfaced last summer. He was arrested in September and the Creative Frontier Charter School was closed.

At the time, investigators said they had more than 10 victims who were current or former students, whose claims spanned about 15 years.

Adams’ family and parents have denounced the allegations, posting encouraging comments on his Facebook page and showing their support in public rallies.
