Ind. Gov't. - "Embattled LaPorte athletic director receives two awards for his work"

Marisa Kwiatkowski reported this week in the NWI Times that in a story that begins:

LAPORTE | Embattled LaPorte High School Athletic Director Ed Gilliland received awards this year for merit and distinguished service, according to the Indiana Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association.

The awards were announced at a time that Gilliland faces criminal misdemeanor charges of failure of duty for not reporting an inappropriate relationship between a junior varsity volleyball coach and an underage girl, court records state.

He and head volleyball coach MaryBeth Lebo are accused of having reason to believe a relationship between the girl and Robert Ashcraft, a former girls assistant volleyball coach, was happening but not reporting it to law enforcement or child protective services between August 2007 and October 2008, court records state.

Ashcraft was found guilty in 2011 of three counts of sexual misconduct with a minor and one count of child seduction, court records show. He is serving a 21-year prison sentence.

Here is a list of earlier ILB entries mentioning "Gilliland".
