After nearly three months of investigation, the Ross County Grand Jury returned an indictment against former Chillicothe High School principal Jeff Fisher for seven counts of Sexual Battery - each with a potential prison sentence of up to 60 months.
That was reported in a statement released at 5:05 Friday afternoon by Ross County Prosecuting Attorney Matt Schmidt.
He went on to note that on August 16th, the Executive Director of the South Central Ohio Department of Job & Family Services reported allegations that Fisher may have engaged in sexual conduct with students.
Director Jody Walker and Prosecutor Schmidt then met with the Chillicothe Police Chief and requested a formal investigation.
The indictment charges Fisher with engaging in sexual conduct with two female students, who have since graduated.
Each of the seven counts is a third-degree felony, and carries a potential prison sentence of 12-60 months.
