“They are to stay 500 feet away from Dr. Petruzielo at all times,” she said. “They are required to perform 200 hours of community service and may not possess guns, drugs or alcohol. Each received a fine of $1,000 per felony so Knowles has a $3,000 fine, Marlow and Trim have $2,000.”
Petruzielo said through a school spokesman that justice was served.
“Their sentencing is no cause for celebration and should not be for our community; but this action, coupled with Ms. Marlow’s resignation, provides some sense of closure for us.
“I look forward to the students of School Board District 1 receiving new representation on the School Board, and the School Board returning to the civil and productive atmosphere for which it formerly was known.”
A special election will be held to fill Marlow’s term, which expires Dec. 31 2016, according to school district spokeswoman Barbara Jacoby.
