Platte County Principal resigns

The principal of a northwest Missouri high school has resigned after being arrested in a prostitution sting.

Platte County Principal ,37-year-old Patrick N. Martin resigned Monday, citing personal reasons. Martin was given a misdemeanor citation after he was arrested on Sept. 26. Police allege Martin was arrested after he met a woman at a hotel and agreed to pay for sex acts. The woman was a Kansas City police detective. The meeting was arranged through an Internet ad soliciting a date. Platte County Superintendent Mike Reik says Alan Burch was named interim principal of the Platte City high school.
