Ex-DPS Board President Gets Probation
A former Detroit School Board president has been sentenced to two years probation following allegations that he fondled himself during a meeting with a district employee.
The Wayne County prosecutor’s office says Tuesday in a release that Circuit Court Judge Vera Massey Jones also ordered Otis Mathis to have no contact with ex-schools Superintendent Teresa Gueyser, no unsupervised contact with children, community service and restitution.
Mathis had pleaded no contest to a charge of misconduct in office.
Gueyser filed a complaint against Mathis in June. She has claimed discrimination, sexual harassment and wrongful termination in a suit against the district.
Mathis wrote in his June 17 resignation letter that he “made inappropriate actions toward a professional employee of the board.”
