WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A former assistant principal has been charged with sexually abusing a 6-year-old girl at the Wichita elementary school where he worked until the allegations came to light.

Fifty-nine-year-old Rober C. Baker was charged Wednesday in Sedgwick County District Court with one count of rape and one count
of aggravated indecent liberties with a child.

Baker had been an employee of the Wichita school district since 1974 and spent more than 10 years as an administrator.

Most recently, he worked at Cloud Elementary. He was placed on paid administrative leave when a police report was filed last month. He told a judge Wednesday that he has since retired.

Baker is free on $250,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court March 18 for a preliminary hearing.
