Gun-related charges against a Georgetown Preparatory Academy employee will be dropped, Montgomery County prosecutors confirmed. 

Stephen P. Lafferty, 46, of Frederick, Md., was arrested lat month after admitting to bringing a gun onto school property and keeping it on his desk.

Lafferty was arrested after other employees called Montgomery County Police to the all-boys' private Jesuit high school in Bethesda, Md. The employees told authorities that another coworker had sent a picture to the Dean of Students, showing him there was a gun in Lafferty's office.

Prosecutors tell News4 the charges against Lafferty will now be dropped because the law only bans guns at public schools, not provate.

Lafferty also faced a drug paraphernalia charge, which will also be dropped if he finishes a drug education program.
