Past is prologue.
The New Holstein schools superintendent charged this week with soliciting sex online from a minor resigned as athletics coordinator from the Madison School District in 2005 after viewing pornography on his work computer.
The Department of Public Instruction investigated Christopher J. Nelson in 2005 after Madison officials brought the matter to its attention. But the agency did not find reason to revoke his teaching license, and records of the investigation were destroyed in 2008, DPI spokesman Patrick Gasper said Wednesday.
New Holstein officials contend they were never told of prior misconduct.
