Sterling High School (HISD) principal, Leviticus Williams, 43, has been charged with assault on a family member – accused of allegedly hitting his girlfriend over the head with a bottle, on September 21, according to a Harris County document.
A spokesman for HISD has acknowledged that Williams had a prior misdemeanor on his record, but explains that he fully disclosed the prior act during his hiring in August 2010.
According to an official district statement, Williams has been relieved of all administrative duties pending a determination related to “personal matters.”
Any potential disciplinary measures will follow a review of Williams’ personnel file.
