Teacher cleared of drug, gun charges (framed by ex-wife?)

Police: Fullerton teacher was framed - Los Angeles Times:

"A Fullerton high school history teacher who was jailed this week when police -- acting on a tip -- found a shotgun and marijuana in his car in the school parking lot was actually the 'victim of an elaborate setup,' police said Thursday.

Investigators are now convinced that Gregory Abbott, 31, of Placentia, who has taught at Sunny Hills High School for seven years, is innocent and was actually a victim, said Sgt. Mike MacDonald of the Fullerton Police Department.

Detectives want to talk to Abbott's estranged wife and a male friend. MacDonald declined to identify the pair, calling them 'persons of interest at this time' and not suspects."
