Principal didn't report suspected sexual abuse because she believed the teacher's story

Teacher blindfolded, gagged students

SAN JOSE, Calif. -  

The San Jose principal accused of failing to report the suspected sexual abuse of a girl by a teacher says she believed the teacher's story about what was allegedly going on in his classroom.
 
Lyn Vijayendran testified at her trial yesterday that teacher Craig Chandler appeared forthright when he told her an incident during which he allegedly blindfolded a second-grader and put something in her mouth was part of a lesson plan about Helen Keller.
 
Chandler is facing charges of committing lewd and lascivious acts on five children.
