DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – A former high school teacher with Plymouth-Canton Community Schools who authorities said brought a gun to school has been sentenced to two years of probation.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office said Raymond Schepansky’s sentence handed down Friday in a Detroit courtroom included 17 days in the Wayne County Jail with credit for that time, which he previously served. He pleaded guilty last month to carrying a concealed weapon.

The 52-year-old Schepansky was arrested at the school on April 14 after allegedly making threats against his colleagues the day before. Classes were abruptly canceled for 6,300 students as police secured the campus. It happend during the schools’ anti-bullying week.

Schepansky has said he never intended to harm anyone.  He is no longer employed with the district.
