Perry school superintendent cleared of child porn allegations
Last year, we reported that John Paul Amis, superintendent of Perry County Schools, was under a cloud of suspicion for allegedly having pornography on his school computer. Others intimated that the porn was actually child porn. Amis, who hails from the same hometown as Lt. Gov. Dan Mongiardo, was a member of new Gov. Steve Beshear's transition team for the Education Cabinet.
In the interests of fairness, we report that Amis has been cleared of these allegations when a sitting grand jury in Hazard returned a "no true bill" after investigating the allegations.
