MAUMEE, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Oregon School Board President PJ Kapfhammer was found guilty of a single charge of disorderly conduct by Maumee Municipal Judge Gary Byers Monday. Kapfhammer pled no contest to the charge, which is a misdemeanor.

Kapfhammer was accused of verbally abusing a person with autism at Clay High School during an incident in February.

Judge Byers ordered Kapfhammer to pay a $150 fine and $87 in court costs which both were paid before leaving the courtroom. The charge of menacing was dismissed.

Kapfhammer left court with no comment to Toledo News Now. His lawyer, however, said Kapfhammer is ready to get back to work.

"This case is behind us, and it allows PJ to get back to work and working with the kids in Oregon," said S. Scott Schwab. "And it was a disposition that everybody took part in, which is always the best way to resolve a case."
