Judge rules in favor of Robert Gagnon

Robert Gagnon should not be fired because of his involvement in the Rod Frazier case, according to officials.

Administrative Law Judge Lynne Quimby-Pennock ruled June 30, that Gagnon should not be penalized further, because of his involvement in the former Manatee High School assistant football coach's case. 

A school district investigation, which started more than a year ago, found that Gagnon, then-principal of Manatee High, knew about Frazier's foul play with students and did not report the incidents or take other action.

Schools Superintendent Rick Mills feels unsure as to what the school district will decide next.

"We are in receipt of the decision of the administrative law judge and we are in the process of reviewing it to determine what further course of action should be taken on behalf of the school district."
