BLUEFIELD - A former Mercer County teacher plead guilty today to federal failure to appear charges.
Officials in Bluefield tell Newswatch 34 year-old Brett David Bowyer of Scarbro entered the plea today. The former Princeton High School Counselor was indicted in June after his arrest in Florida following a traffic stop.
He plead guilty to possession of child pornography last October but failed to appear for sentencing in May. He is being held without bond in Southern Regional Jail.
Another trial date is set for September 17th.
