Oswald takes the stand, asks for reduced bond

Posted:

DUBUQUE (KWWL) -- Dubuque Assistant Principal Shane Oswald was in court again Tuesday, asking for a reduced bond.

Oswald is currently on paid administrative leave from Hempstead High School. He was arrested last week for sexual exploitation by a school employee and distribution of drugs and alcohol to a minor.

Prosecutors say Oswald is a flight risk and danger to the community. Oswald took the stand on Tuesday, telling the court he would not leave town.

"It's my intent that I'm present so we can clear all this up and I can move forward with my life. Fleeing does absolutely nothing to forward that agenda," Oswald said.

The judge ruled to keep the $50,000 bond.
