A Swampscott resident who is a teacher in next-door Lynn pleaded not guilty to giving pot to a student, according to 7News.
Police say Charles Saltzman, 50, gave marijuana to a 17-year-old girl at Lynn English High School. Saltzman, who lives in Swampscott, has taught at the school for 15 years.
According to the school's Web site, Saltzman is a teacher in the English Department. His courses include college prep English.
Saltzman was in court Wednesday to face the charge.
[Editor's note: I've slightly altered the headline and first sentence to emphasize that Saltzman lives in Swampscott but teaches in Lynn.]
