    A former principal who was fired from the Tunbridge Central School after being accused of having inappropriate contact with a child has pleaded not guilty.

    The Valley News reports Richard Talbot pleaded not guilty at his arraignment Wednesday to a misdemeanor charge of engaging in a prohibited act involving an 11-year-old student.

    He was originally charged with lewd and lascivious conduct with a child, a felony. But Orange County State's Attorney William Porter said the facts of the case merited the lesser charge.

    Vermont State Police started investigating the 68-year-old Talbot of South Royalton in February.
