Former West Fargo principal charged with additional sex-related crimes

(Fargo, ND) – A former West Fargo principal charged with multiple child pornography related charges earlier this year is now facing new charges.

According to court charges, David Preston George is now charged with one Class AA Felony charge of Gross Sexual Imposition and one Class C Felony charge of solicitation of a minor.

The charges were filed in Cass County District Court in Fargo on Thursday. According to available court records, the victim was under the age of 15 at the time of the crime.

WDAY Radio has requested the court documents.

George will be arraigned Friday at 9 a.m. in Cass County District Court in front of Judge Constance Cleveland.

West Fargo Public Schools released a statement following the filing of the charges, saying the charges do not involve West Fargo students.

"Earlier today, Cass County prosecutors filed gross sexual imposition and solicitation of a minor charges against former WFPS administrator David George," a statement released by West Fargo Public Schools said. "We have received confirmation from the Cass County prosecutor that these charges are NOT related to West Fargo Public Schools’ learners. Therefore, the school district has no additional comment on this case."
