School officials seek former teacher who allegedly took bribes

PENSACOLA, Fla. - A middle school gym teacher let children sit out his class if they paid him $1 a day, collecting perhaps thousands of dollars, officials said Thursday.

Terence Braxton, 28, took the payoffs between September and December, resigning after the principal learned of the scheme from a parent, authorities said.

He is being sought on bribery charges.

The charges accuse Braxton of taking about $230 from six students, but sheriff's spokesman Mike Ward said the teacher's take was probably much greater.
