This is what wane gives us:
BERNE, Ind.(WANE)- Back in March South Adams Athletic Director Mike Pries was placed on administrative leave and banned from school grounds.
For months the public looked for an answer, and now we know why Pries' job was in question.
According to the fact finding document, in 2008, South Adams Superintendent Cathy Egolf was contacted by a Softball Coach at Wabash High School, where Pries used to work.
That coach was concerned that Pries was employed by South Adams Schools. The document states, Pries allegedly attempted to touch and kiss a Wabash student during his time of employment.
It also states,Pries allegedly bought alcohol and a car for that same student. Pries says he never engaged in any inappropriate behavior with any student.
The document also shows, during his time at the Community Schools of Frankfort, Pries was investigated for having alleged inappropriate contact with female students.
According to the document, in 2008 a student and a South Adams' parent accused Pries of engaging in a sexual relationship with a former student.
The Berne Police Department investigated the allegation, but the former student and Pries denied it. The detective could not prove the allegation was true.
Pries was also accused of poor job performance and failure to make necessary improvements.
Ultimately, the alleged misconduct in Wabash was more than seven years ago, and the Board says Pries could not be terminated for it.
The alleged sexual relationship with a former South Adams student was never proven.
And the job performance allegations were not considered insubordination or neglect of duty.
NewsChannel 15 asked Pries if he thought the community would look at him the same way?
"I think so there's always going to be some doubters and I think that's with anybody that's in the public eye, but I want the focus to get back on our kids and our student athletes," said Mike Pries, South Adams Athletic Director.
Pries has been back to work for a week.
I have a friend on Facebook that was saying that she kept on seeing Pries post on her wall, and she didn't even know who he was. Then he started to message her, and gave his phone number to her. Now, he also gave his number to one of my friends, which may I also say that my friend: is not enrolled in South Adams high school and is also a freshman. I decided to reverse-look up the phone number and it matched to Berne,IN; thinking that it could have been a pre-paid number. I also looked up information about him to see if it matched his Facebook information. Which turned out to match up perfectly. So if people are going to claim that someone is impersonating him, you are full of crap.
Pries is also active everyday on his Facebook account. I obtained all of this information 100% legally, and provided my friend with the information if she wishes to report it.
