Story PictureHe should know right from wrong and was expected to be at school but tonight a teacher is behind bars after he pleaded guilty to burglary. Fifty-one year old Stephen O’Brien, also known as “O.B.”, taught arts and craft at Tubal Institute, a boys’ school in Ladyville. But he will now spend three years in prison for breaking into a house in Burrell Boom Village. The incident occurred around nine-twenty on Monday morning at a concrete bungalow house. The complainant, twenty-one year old Erneldo Cruz, told police that he was sitting in the living room of his mother-in-law’s house when he heard a noise coming from the bedroom. Cruz said when he checked, he saw O’Brien with a DVD player in his hand. O’Brien dropped the DVD player and the men struggled but O’Brien managed to escape.
