John McGill, the Douglas County elementary school principal arrested in a child sex sting earlier this year, has been indicted by a federal grand jury.

McGill, suspended as principal at Mt. Carmel Elementary, has been charged with attempting to have sex with a minor.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported a federal warrant was issued Tuesday for McGill’s arrest.

McGill was arrested along with 13 others during a GBI sting in March. He allegedly replied to a Cragslist posting by an undercover agent to meet a 13-year-old girl for sex in DeKalb County, where he was arrested.

McGill was suspended by the Douglas County School Board, which has since hired a new principal.

He should not be allowed in the company of children ever again.
