The case of Kristin Renee Bolam, a York County elementary school principal who was arrested for alleged assault and battery of a family member, was found “nolle prosequi” on Friday.
Nolle prosequi means prosecutors will not pursue the charges unless new evidence comes to light.
That determination was made during a hearing Friday in the Williamsburg-James City County Juvenile Domestic Relations court, according to a court clerk.
Bolam, who is the principal of Mt. Vernon Elementary School, was arrested on June 14 as a result of a May 3 doctor’s visit during which a juvenile came in with scratches on his neck and a bruise on his leg, authorities said.
Bolam was placed on administrative leave at the school after she notified the district of the charges. Previously, Katherine Goff, spokeswoman for the district, said it was the division’s policy regarding similar matters for the employee to self-report.
Goff has also said it is the division’s policy to keep a staff member on administrative leave until there is a resolution of their charges.
Goff did not immediately respond for comment and it is unclear whether Bolam’s leave will end anytime soon.
