MANDAN, N.D. (AP) -- A former Mandan High School Social Studies teacher faces a felony charge of promoting obscenity to minors.
Police say 45 year-old Scott Allan gave 17 and 18 year old females a sexually explicit book he had written, as a graduation gift. Characters in the book allegedly were based on the females. The girls told police they were disgusted by what they read and decided to report the incident due to the sexual nature.
School officials placed Allan on administrative leave on May 22, and he resigned later that day.
He was charged Wednesday with the felony and also misdemeanor disorderly conduct. He turned himself in Wednesday night.
