Teacher Goes To Jail For Showing A Bad Movie


TYT Network

“A former substitute teacher convicted of showing a movie including graphic sex and violence to a high school class was sentenced on Wednesday to 90 days in jail,” according to the Huffington Post.

The teacher should be disciplined by the school, but should she be put in jail?

Sheila Kearns, who was convicted in January of four felony counts, showed it to her Spanish classes at Columbus’ East High School in April 2013.

The movie, “The ABCs of Death,” consists of 26 chapters, each depicting some form of grisly death, states The Huffington Post.

Kearns, who showed the movie during five periods of the class, was convicted of “disseminating matter harmful to juveniles,” according to The Huffington Post.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that the judge placed her on probation for three years but made the jail time a condition of probation.
