SPARKS, Nev. (AP) - A University of Nevada, Reno professor pleaded no contest to two misdemeanors in a case involving walking a 13-year-old student to a principal’s office by his ear.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports (https://on.rgj.com/2tjiUoq ) that Howard Rosenberg pleaded no contest Tuesday in Sparks Municipal Court to trespassing and disciplining a student without a teacher’s license.

A judge fined Rosenberg about $1,300.

Defense attorney Robert Fahrendorf said Rosenberg was training a middle school art teacher April 3 when he identified a student as being responsible for a disruption involving scissors.

Taking the student out of class, not pulling his ear, was the focus of Tuesday’s hearing.

Neither Rosenberg nor the student’s family commented.

Rosenberg is a former state university regent and also served four years as a Washoe County school trustee.
