By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A former Topeka assistant high school principal has entered into a diversion agreement with the Shawnee County prosecutor's office on a charge that he patronized a prostitute.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports 42-year-old Jeff L. Moss was arrested Aug. 17 in an Internet prostitution sting that resulted in 12 arrests in Topeka.

Moss was placed on administrative leave from his job as Highland Park High School's assistant principal after his arrest, and the school board voted to terminate his contract Sept. 6. He was charged with the misdemeanor count in October.

In the diversion deal, Moss must complete certain requirements to have the criminal charge dismissed. He also has to pay $170 in court costs and fees.
