DETROIT (WWJ) – A former Canton teacher has pleaded guilty to carrying a concealed weapon.

Raymond Schepansky, 52, appeared in Wayne County Circuit Court Judge David Allen’s courtroom Wednesday morning to make the plea.

The charges stem from an incident that occurred at the Plymouth-Canton Educational Park campus during anti-bullying week. Schepansky was arrested April 14, when he was found with a gun in his car after allegedly making threats against his colleagues the day before. Classes were abruptly canceled for 6,300 students as police secured the campus.

In District Court, four counts were dismissed, including carrying a gun on school grounds and trying to use the gun to injure someone. District Court Judge Michael Gerou ruled that the alleged threats were not credible.  Schepansky said he didn’t plan to hurt anyone.

Sentencing is set for October 28.

Schepansky was terminated from the district two weeks ago.
