Rehobeth Teacher Pleads Guilty to Gun Violation

DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) - A Houston County school teacher who pleaded guilty to bringing a gun on school grounds will be allowed to keep his job.

47-year-old Andrew Martin, a teacher at Rehobeth Middle School, pleaded guilty to carrying a pistol without a permit. He was arrested in August.

At a hearing yesterday in district court, Martin told a judge he had used the .45 caliber pistol during a weekend outing in Florida and forgot to remove the weapon from his vehicle.

He was given a 10 day suspended sentence and fined $50.00, plus court costs.
