Jury Selection in Former Mifflin Principal Trial Continues
Jury selection continues in Franklin County Juvenile Court in the trial of former Mifflin High School principal Regina Crenshaw. Crenshaw is being tried on a criminal misdemeanor charge of failing to immediately report the sexual assault of a Mifflin student.
Prosecutor Steve MacIntosh questioned potential jurors extensively on their opinions about the Columbus School system. One potential juror said he enrolled his children in Gahanna schools to avoid what he believed were the Columbus system’s problems. Regina Crenshaw’s attorney Toki Clark asked potential jurors whether they had ever called 911, what they’d do if there were no response, and if there were none, if they would call the number again. Crenshaw says the Columbus school board discouraged school staff from contacting police using 911.
