Goldie Maple Principal Back At Desk After Menacing Bust
A longtime Rockaway principal who was arrested in her Valley Stream home on April 19, for her involvement in a domestic dispute with her husband, is back at her school desk after a court adjudication that freed her, officials say.
Angela Logan, 47, the principal of the Goldie Maple Academy, also designated as PS 333, on Beach 56 Street and Beach Channel Drive, was arrested by Nassau County police officer Anthony Uvena at about 7:45 a.m. at her Nassau County home and charged with menacing with a weapon.
Margie Feinberg, a spokesperson for the city’s Department of Education, confirmed at the time that Logan had been arrested. “She was arrested and has been reassigned pending the outcome of the criminal charges against her,” Feinberg told The Wave on Tuesday. “She will not be returning to the school until the case is satisfied.”
According to court documents, Logan menaced her unnamed husband with a knife, which had a silver handle and a six-inch blade.
Logan allegedly used the knife to scare her husband, who was withholding her cell phone.
The knife was recovered from a kitchen drawer by Police Officer Uvena.
In September, however, Logan reported back to the school for the beginning of the school year, prompting The Wave to check on the status of the case.
“[Logan’s] case was adjourned in contemplation of dismissal on June 28,” Chris Munzing, a spokesperson for the Nassau County District Attorney, told The Wave this week. “This means that if she stays out of trouble for a year beginning in June, then the case will disappear from her record.”
Feinberg added, “She was acquitted by the courts and returned to school.”
Calls to the school for comment went unreturned.
