DANBURY, Conn. (AP) — A Newtown teacher who was arrested for allegedly bringing a gun to the town’s middle school is due in court for his arraignment this week.
Jason Adams is expected to appear Wednesday in Danbury Superior Court.
He was arrested on April 6 and placed on administrative leave.
Police say he had a valid pistol permit, but Connecticut state law prohibits possession of firearms on school grounds.
Adams has not responded to phone messages left at his home.
A gunman shot and killed 20 children and six educators inside a Newtown elementary school on Dec. 14, 2012.
