Statement Regarding Decision by The Hon. Philip J. Roche To Dismiss All Charges Against Hornell High School Assistant Principal Eli Marcus:

Yesterday, the Steuben County Court dismissed all charges against Eli Marcus. Eli is relieved by the Court’s decision. Eli has staunchly maintained his innocence since the beginning of the investigation. Shortly after the charges were announced, the Hornell City School District Board of Education stated that the charges were not justified. Eli is a family man and life-long educator. With the support of his family, friends, and colleagues, Eli looks forward to putting this saga behind him.
