Agreement set between prosecutors and Chiefland teacher arrested for having a gun on campus
CHIEFLAND, Fla. (WCJB) - A former Chiefland elementary school teacher will not be returning to the classroom, but she also doesn’t have to go back to jail.
Paige Ehlers reached a pre-trial agreement with prosecutors on Friday.
Students found a gun in her car on school grounds back in October.
Prosecutors say she sent two students, ages 9 and 10, to retrieve medication from her car when they found the weapon.
As part of the agreement, Ehlers admitted the offense.
For 18 months, Ehlers can not possess a firearm, must complete 50 hours of community service, have no unsupervised contact with children, or return to Levy County school property.
