CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- A former elementary school administrator in Charlotte has pleaded after being accused of assaulting a student's mother.

The Charlotte Observer reported ( ) that Rodney Roseboro entered an Alford plea on a charge of assaulting a female last May. An Alford plea does not admit guilt, but concedes there is enough evidence to result in a conviction.

The former dean of students at Winding Springs Elementary was placed on probation for three years.

A sexual battery charge from the incident last May was dropped. Roseboro was accused of inappropriately touching the woman.

He was suspended last June and was fired in January.
