A former Amarillo school teacher is being treated at a Lubbock hospital Thursday night, after he collapsed in a Lubbock courtroom.
On Wednesday, a Lubbock jury found former Tascosa High School teacher David Brown guilty on five charges of indecency with a child. 45-year-old Brown admitted to participating in a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old student on 6 separate occasions.
Thursday, the verdict was vacated as Brown agreed to plead guilty. In return, prosecutors offered deferred adjudication which means the conviction would be erased if he completes 10 years probation.
As the agreement was read, Brown complained of chest pains and collapsed.
