2nd Teacher Arrested In Sex Scandal Remains Jailed

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles County sheriff's officials say the second teacher charged in a sex abuse scandal that has rocked an elementary school is attempting to make bond, but remains jailed.

A sheriff's department statement says information on its website that Martin Springer had posted bail and was released Thursday night "was posted in error." He remains held on $300,000 bail.

The 49-year-old was arrested last week after two girls said he had fondled them in class in 2009. He pleaded not guilty after he was charged with committing three lewd acts on one girl in 2009.

The other girl has since recanted her allegation.
