AIKEN A former Aiken County school principal has been indicted on 19 sexual misconduct charges from incidents that occurred in the 1970s.
Stephen C. Eubanks, 67, was indicted on Sept. 10 for charges including lewd act upon a child under the age of 16, exposing private parts and enticing children from school, said Aiken County Assistant Solicitor Brenda Brisbine.
According to Augusta Chronicle archives, Mr. Eubanks was an assistant principal at North Augusta High School and a principal at Paul Knox Junior High, now Paul Knox Middle School.
The male and female students that Mr. Eubanks sexually assaulted told police that they attended both schools where he was an administrator in the late 1970s, SLED spokeswoman Jennifer Timmons said in a news release. Mr. Eubanks engaged in sexual activity with a 14-year-old boy at his home on Argyle Avenue between 1975 and 1977 and sexually assaulted a 16-year-old girl at his home in 1976.
Mr. Eubanks will remain on house arrest with GPS monitoring until he pleads guilty or goes to trial, Ms. Brisbine said. A date has not been set for his next court date.
