"Sex Toy" Charges Dropped, Stony Brook Principal is Back on the Job

Question Remains - Can community ever respect her again?

Stony Brook Elementary School Principal Mary Patricia Allen is back on the job in Brewster after charges against her were dropped.  Ms. Allen was charged last month with breaking into an ex-boyfriend's apartment where she allegedly stole sex toys and a book.

Ms. Allen, who has only been at Stony Brook since last summer, was released on $200 bail last month after being charged  with Breaking and Entering a building in the nighttime for a felony and two counts of larceny from a building.  Those charges were reduced and then dismissed on November 3rd.  Court documents indicate she must pay $350 in restitution to a Belchertown woman.

Nauset Superintendent Thomas Conrad informed the school community of Ms. Allen's return in a letter on Monday in which he said, "I am confident she continues to be a viable leader of the school."

The question now, dear readers, is whether the school community and taxpayers of Brewster can hold her in respect.

In our opinion, she should pack up her toys and go home.  The children of Brewster deserve better.
