Report: Principal ousted because of nude pictures

THE BRONX - The principal of Cardinal Hayes High School resigned last week after inappropriate images were found on his computer, according to the New York Post.

Images of nude men were allegedly found on the computer of Christopher Keogan, principal of the high school on the Grand Concourse. Letters were sent home to students last week announcing the resignation, but the recent allegations of nude pictures caught students by surprise.

The parents that News 12 The Bronx spoke to expressed shock and anger at the allegations. However, they said they are prepared to move forward with a new principal.

According to the newspaper article, no charges were filed against Keogan because the images were of adult men.

A spokesperson for the Christian Brothers, the religious order that Keogan belongs to, would not comment on the resignation out of respect for Keogan's privacy. News 12 The Bronx - also reached out to the Archdiocese of New York, but has received no comment.

According to Keogan's attorney, Colleen Meenan, the Archdiocese says the former principal violated school policy - a policy Meenan says she's still waiting to see in writing.

Meenan says she's also asked to see the supposed inappropriate pictures, but her calls to the Archdiocese's attorney have not been returned.

News 12 The Bronx obtained a document Thursday with at least eight more accusations against Keogan and others at Hayes dealing with sexual abuse, theft and fraud. That document was sent to the Archdiocese and the Bronx District Attorney.

Meenan says that she and her client are exploring all options in an effort to save Keogan's reputation.
