A former principal who kissed three male students’ feet to pay off what he said was a bet from a student-teacher volleyball game has been found guilty of a misdemeanor charges of sexual imposition.
Robert Holloway, 50, the former principal at St. Anthony of Padua School in Lorain was convicted after entering a no contest plea Tuesday in Lorain Municipal Court.
He also was convicted of unauthorized use of public property, also a misdemeanor. He faces up to 15 months in prison at his sentencing in June.
“It’s not behind me yet,” Holloway said as he left court.
Holloway resigned as principal after the 14-year-old students and their parents reported the March 2006 foot-kissing to police.
Holloway told authorities that he paid each student $15 and kissed their bare feet 50 times in the school’s library and gym.
Police Sgt. Mark Carpentiere said 400 images depicting adult foot fetish behavior were found on two school computers seized from Holloway’s office.
The photos depicted the scenarios that he had engaged in with the boys, Carpentiere said.
