A Summerville High School assistant principal remains on administrative leave until her DUI charge is resolved.

Christie O’Rear, 40, of Kingsley Vale Court, had a DUI hearing scheduled Tuesday, but it was continued, according to the magistrate court in Summerville. A continuance means a new date will be set for the hearing.

O’Rear was put on administrative leave with pay Dec. 30 pending the resolution of the charge, District 2 spokeswoman Pat Raynor said.

A Summerville police officer stopped her around 3:30 a.m. Dec. 20 on Boone Hall Road, and a Dorchester County deputy arrested her since it was outside the town limits.
