Freeport teacher pleads not guilty to terrorizing students

WEST BATH — A Freeport Middle School teacher charged with Class D terrorizing pleaded not guilty Tuesday in Maine District Court.

Cumberland County Assistant District Attorney Michael Madigan said the teacher, David Mason, did not appear in court. He entered the plea through his attorney, John Richardson of Brunswick.

Mason, 58, of Yarmouth, was charged in February with making a threatening statement to students. It is a charge Richardson said is a result of "political correctness run amok."

Madigan said he expects Mason's next court appearance to be in Portland, but did not specify a date.
