Detroit Teacher Avoids Manslaughter Charges
An involuntary manslaughter charge has been dismissed against a teacher who was blamed for the death of a teenager at a high school pool in suburban Detroit. Johnathan Sails was accused of failing to keep an eye on 14-year-old KeAir Swift, who was having trouble in the water at East Detroit High School in 2013. Macomb County Judge James Maceroni says Sails' conduct doesn't rise to criminal culpability, even if he hesitated before going into the water to try to help the boy. Assistant prosecutor Bill Cataldo says an appeal is likely.
