mathis otisdl1 Former DPS Board Prez Appears In CourtA not guilty plea has been entered for former Detroit School Board President Otis Mathis who appeared in court on charges that he fondled himself during a meeting with the district superintendent. 

The 55-year-old Mathis stood mute Tuesday afternoon in 36th District Court to misconduct in office and obscene conduct charges.

He was released on a $50,000 personal bond and ordered to have no contact with Superintendent Teresa Gueyser, who filed the complaint against him, the Detroit School Board or children in any school.

Neither Mathis nor his attorney commented to reporters after the hearing.

Mathis is due back in court for a preliminary examination July 30.

Mathis resigned from the board June 17 following Gueyser’s allegations.
