A Peoria judge has upheld the firing of a former Peoria school principal once accused of taking money from the district. That judge rules Peoria District 150 was just in its firing of former principal Mary Davis. Davis was fired in 2010. She was originally charged with taking unauthorized money from the district while principal at Lindbergh Middle School. However, that charge and others were dropped when she pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of attempted obstruction of justice. This ruling overturns a decision by a hearing officeer who claimed Davis was improperly fired and should be reinstated. Davis now has 30 days to appeal.
