The GPS athletic director who was arrested Wednesday night in an undercover prostitution sting has resigned, according to school officials.
Stacey Gene Hill, 59, was among eight people arrested in the sting in Dalton, Ga.
In the operation, an officer posed as a prostitute while investigators placed an ad online, and Hill, 59, responded to the ad and agreed to meet with the undercover officer at an apartment, according to a statement from the Dalton Police Department.
The others arrested Wednesday were: Banner Anibal Tomas-Bail, 27; Oscar Holliday, 28; Joseph Brandt, 33; Muhammed Rasheed, 63; Kyle Michael Chadwick, 28; Mark John Gibson, 41; and Miguel Jarquin-Ordaz, 39. All were charged with pandering, a misdemeanor.
"... Our community is experiencing hurt over this situation, and it is important that we proceed with integrity and in the best interests of our girls," an email from the school read.
