Teacher loses license, gets jail time
A 43 year-old teacher from Portland, Maine lost his teaching license after pleading guilty to providing alcohol to a minor.
Last September, police were informed that the teacher provided alcohol to a 16 year-old at his apartment the month before. The gender of the teenager and whether or not he or she was a student at the high school he taught at was not disclosed. Along with revoking his teaching license, the man was sentenced to five days in jail.
Since 1993, he taught English at the high school. He also coached boys varsity soccer, boys varsity tennis, and was an adviser for the Student Council and chess club.
