An assistant principal in Topeka is on administrative leave while the school district investigates his arrest in connection with soliciting a prostitute.
WIBW reports Topeka Public Schools spokesman Ron Harbaugh confirmed that Highland Park High School's Jeff Moss is on leave with pay pending the outcome of an investigation.
Moss was arrested over the weekend. Shawnee County jail records show he was booked Friday afternoon in connection with patronizing a prostitute. Moss was released on bond Friday evening.
Harbaugh said school district officials weren't aware of Moss' arrest until media contacted him over the weekend.
"School district officials continue to gather information this morning (Monday) about the arrest and are working with the Topeka Police Department on this matter," said Harbaugh.
