Newton Teacher Facing Child Porn Charges Resigns

NEWTON (AP) — The Newton elementary school teacher facing child pornography charges has resigned before the school district had a chance to fire him.

The superintendent says 34-year-old David Ettlinger submitted his letter of resignation on Tuesday, the day before a disciplinary hearing was scheduled to be held.

Ettlinger, who lives in Boston, had been on paid leave since his arrest last month.

Ettlinger is accused of recording a sexual assault on a family friend under the age of 14.

State police also allege he had images of child pornography on his home computer.

Ettlinger was a second-grade teacher at the city’s Underwood Elementary School for 11 years. He has pleaded not guilty.

    No surprise that this COWARD resigned before facing the music. He won’t get off so easy with the judicial system. You can run, but you can’t hide.
