Teacher fired over domestic violence dispute

A San Diego catholic school teacher was fired from her job after a domestic violence dispute with her ex-husband.

Second-grade teacher Carie Charlesworth was fired from Holy Trinity School in El Cajon after 14 years with the diocese. The school said the decision was made in the interest of the safety of the students, faculty and parents.

In January Charlesworth's ex-husband showed up at the school despite a restraining order, resulting in a schoolwide lockdown. She has been on paid leave since the incident and the diocese agreed to pay her through August.

Charlesworth says she is now considering a lawsuit against the San Diego diocese.
