McIntosh Co. Asst. Superintendent pleads not guilty in court

Posted: Updated:

Attorneys are sifting through evidence against McIntosh County Assistant Superintendent Larry Day.

Day made his first appearance in court on Thursday, pleading not guilty to failing to report child abuse. The superintendent and McIntosh County Academy principal are also being charged after high school teacher Lori Quigley was accused of having sex with several students.

Day was the first of the three in court, almost two months since all three administrators were arrested and charged.

Day stood before a superior court judge on Wednesday. He faces a misdemeanor charge of failing to report child abuse.

Thursday's hearing begins what could be a very long judicial process that could eventually go to trial.

Day's attorney said Day has never had any prior convictions, but if he is found guilty, he could face up to a year in prison and a $1,000 fine.

There will be at least one more hearing for Day before his case could possibly go to trial. Superintendent Tina Kirby and MCA Principal Terrance Haywood will have their first appearance in court in the next couple of weeks.
