      Former principal waives arraignment

      An Alger County school administrator facing sexual assault charges involving a student waived his arraignment in Alger County Circuit Court on Monday morning. The former principal of Munising Baptist School, 35-year-old Benjamin David Franklin II, was arrested in March.

      Franklin faces three counts of third degree criminal sexual conduct for his alleged involvement with one female student between the ages of 16 and 18. Franklin is scheduled for a preliminary hearing July 1 at 10:30 a.m. He remains free on bond.
