Drew Central School Board Terminates Former Principal Noble, following his December Arrest – Video & Updated Info

January 18th, 2012 by

In a very brief, called business meeting, the Drew Central School  Board unanimously voted to terminate the contract of Steve Noble, high school principal, effective immediately.

Noble was arrested in December, and accused felony internet sex offenses with a police officer, portraying a 13 year old girl.

Arkansas law requires certain time frames be allowed for teacher firings, so Noble was notified and given the required time to respond.

It is believed that the recommendation for Noble’s termination likely mentioned the circuit judge’s order for him to not be around minors precludes him from performing his former job, and non-performance of duties.

Noble was not represented at Tuesday’s hearing,

Drew Central High School Principal Arrested On Alleged Internet Sexual Indecency Charges – Friday Morning Update
Dec. 9. 2011

Drew Central High School principal Steve Noble was arrested around 8 am, Thursday morning, by Arkansas State Police, and expected to be charged with the alleged offense of sexual indecency with a child, according to the prosecuting attorney’s office.

Noble has been Drew Central principal since the start of the 2010-2011 school year.  Prior to that, he was on the staff of the  Great Rivers Education Cooperative in Helena.

Noble is currently being held in the Drew County Detention Facility, on a $10,000 commercial bond, set by Circuit  Judge Bynum Gibson.

The arrest and search warrants, signed last night, allege that Noble had indecent contact over the internet with an Arizona law enforcement officer, who was impersonating a 14 year old girl.

A search warrant was apparently executed at Noble’s home Thursday morning, and State Police Investigators were reportedly present at Drew Central Schools, as well.

Public defender Steven Porch was appointed to defend Noble, who also may face charges and possible extradition to Arizona.

Noble, the DCHS principal, was order by the court to have no contact with juveniles, by any means, until this case is resolved.

A search warrant for contents of Noble’siPhone was also approved this morning.

Court documents indicate that on November 30, around 10:30 pm, Noble (using the chatroom screen name “knob 71859), met and repeatedly interacted with a Phoenix, AZ undercover officer in an internet chatroom, where sexual predators have been previously identified.

Noble reportedly asked the undercover officer (who identified himself as a 14 year old female) by means of a private message, if they wanted to “watch” him, which was followed by an invitation to Noble’s webcam, where multiple screen captures were reportedly made of Noble in his residence, doing specifically named acts in front of his computer’s webcam.

After the session ended, the agent began searching for an identity for “knob 71859″, which led him to Mark Steven Noble, and an article on MonticelloLive, when Noble first came to Drew Central.

Noble’s address and personal information was developed from the investigation, which led to his arrest at his home, Thursday morning.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

According to the affadavit for the search warrant, items listed by authorities to be removed during it’s execution included computers, hard drives, jump drives, digital cameras, camcorders, cds and dvds.

Photographs were also to be taken of Noble’s hands and abdomen, for identification purposes.

 Noble reportedly bonded out of jail, Thursday afternoon.
