DAMASCUS, Md. (FOX 5 DC) - Damascus High School assistant principal Maniya Jules was arrested on March 21 after an officer allegedly saw her driving with a tire blown out on Tuckerman Lane. She’s charged with driving under the influence.
Jules also plead guilty to DUI back in 2017 but remained employed by Montgomery County Public Schools.
On Monday, a school spokesman explained a DUI is not a charge that school staff are required to report. He told FOX 5 they can’t comment further on employee personal matters so it’s not clear what, if any, consequences Jules may face at work.
The high school is embroiled in a scandal involving the junior varsity football team. Four players arrested last fall are charged with rape and attempted rape for the sexual assault of four teammates that involved a broomstick.
The Washington Post is now reporting that there was a delay of several hours before the school notified police that they had learned of at least one possible assault.
