Personnel at the Sussex Correctional Institution say Sussex Central High School Principal Dana Goodman left jail Wednesday after posting bond.

Goodman posted bond after a judge reduced his bail from $331,000 to $125,000 earlier Wednesday.

Goodman is charged with 30 counts of rape for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old student. He has been suspended without pay from his job.

Defense Attorney Tom Pedersen described the initial bond as inappropriate, adding that his client has no criminal record and does not pose a threat to the community.
