Hartford Teacher Resigns After Arrest

A Hartford school teacher has resigned months after his assault arrest on Cape Cod.

An attorney for Travis Marks told the NBC Connecticut Troubleshooters that Marks stepped down from his job as a teacher at the Martin Luther King School in Hartford.

Marks was charged with assault and battery, strangulation or suffocation and indecent assault in Barnstable, Massachusetts in September.

The Hartford school district placed Marks on paid administrative leave a week after his arrest, and sources within the school district confirm Marks later resigned.

Marks is awaiting a jury trial on the charges later this month, according to court officials in Massachusetts.
