Hickey resigned from the school board after the criminal sexual conduct charges were officially filed against him in Lenawee County.

However, he has previously denied any accusations against him.

"No, it didn't happen," Hickey had said in a Leading Edge interview with Jerry Anderson earlier this year. "The best part is, the thing that isn't being brought out is a log of school districts got in trouble when they would have someone leave and then not do anything. Addison Schools had that allegation investigated in 1990. It was investigated and unsubstantiated in 1990."
