Foot kissing principal gets probation
By The Associated Press

LORAIN, Ohio (AP) -- A former principal who kissed the feet of three male students to settle a bet on a volleyball game was sentenced to two years' probation Tuesday.

Robert Holloway, 50, resigned from St. Anthony of Padua School in this city west of Cleveland after the 14-year-old students and their parents reported the foot-kissing to police in February 2006.

Holloway entered a no-contest plea in April and was convicted of three misdemeanor counts of sexual imposition and one count of unauthorized use of public property. He could have received up to 15 months in jail.

Lorain Municipal Court Judge Mark Mihok ordered Holloway to register as a sex offender, pay a $1,000 fine and stay away from activities with children under 18.

Holloway told authorities he paid each student $15 and kissed their bare feet 50 times each in the school's library and gym to pay off the bet on a student-teacher volleyball game.

Police seized two school computers from Holloway's office and found 400 images of adult foot fetish behavior.

The photos depicted the scenarios that he had engaged in with the boys, police said.
