DANBURY, Conn. – A court hearing for a former Newtown, Connecticut, teacher charged with carrying a loaded pistol in school has been postponed.
Jason Adams was scheduled to appear in Danbury Superior Court on Thursday for arguments on his application for accelerated rehabilitation, a probation program that could result in the charges being erased.
The hearing has been rescheduled for Sept. 22.
The former Newtown Middle School teacher was charged in April with carrying a loaded .45-caliber pistol inside the school. Adams had a valid permit, but state law prohibits firearms on school grounds.
