The school’s executive director, Teecy Matthews, said she didn’t know much about the case.


“We were just aware of the mug shot,” said Teecy Matthews. “He resigned from the board of trustees.”


She said Chabot stayed on as an advisor, but does not have anything to do with students or day-to-day school operations.


Channel 9 contacted police in Michigan to get more details about the crimes but has not heard back.
