Hayneville Judge Steps Aside in Case Against Lowndes Co. School Superintendent


By George McDonald

From the West Alabama Newsroom--  The case against Lowndes County School Superintendent is delayed after the city judge recuses himself from the case.

A new judge will have to appointed before the case against Superintendent Daniel Boyd can proceed.

Boyd is now facing 108 counts of reckless endangerment of minors -- after 135 counts were removed from the case.

Selma attorney Hank Sanders is one the lawyers representing Boyd in the case.

"When the warrant was filed it included all of the females in the Hayneville Middle school and all of the females in Central Elementary School," said Sanders.

Hayneville Police Chief Kelvin Mitchell filed the complaint that lead to Boyd's arrest.
"Removing the 135 counts that occurred at the Mosses elementary school and placing them in the proper court system is what we're seeking to do at this time," said Mitchell.

Boyd was supposed to officially enter a plea in case -- but instead decided to wait until the judge who will actually hear the case is in place.
