Assault charges against former HS principal dismissed

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Misdemeanor assault charges against a former Tucson Unified School District principal have been dismissed.

Chris Bonn was the principal at Sahuaro High School when he was charged in the beating of a 16-year-old boy.

The police report said Bonn punched Ramon Morales, Jr., after Morales brought Bonn's 17-year-old stepdaughter home at 4:00 or 4:30 in the morning back in September.

The Morales' attorney, Jesse Smith, said Bonn has compensated the victim and that the family is satisfied.

Smith said the family did not object to charges being dropped.

He said details of the compensation cannot be revealed because of a non-disclosure agreement.

The teenager released photos of the injuries he had sustained due to the alleged assault.  Doctors state Morales suffered a concussion.

The teenager's family could still seek legal action. 

According to Cara Rene, a TUSD spokesperson, Bonn has taken a leadership position with the Exceptional Education Department and will not be back in a campus role.

His duties include work on curriculum, compliance with Arizona Department of Education guidelines, and course descriptions, Rene said.
