PHOENIX — Arizona state Sen. Don Shooter has reached a plea agreement with
the city prosecutor in Yuma in a case where he confronted his grandson’s teacher
that will let him avoid a criminal record.
The Yuma Republican was charged with three misdemeanor counts for the March 22
incident. They included criminal trespassing, disorderly conduct, and
interference or disruption of an educational institution.
The prosecutor’s office said Shooter entered a deferred prosecution agreement
where the charges will be dropped after a year if he maintains a clean record.
He’ll also have to pay $1,500 to his grandson’s former school.
Shooter has said his teenage grandson was being bullied by the teacher.
Witnesses told police he entered the classroom and waved his finger in the
teacher’s face before being persuaded him to leave.
