A former Concord school teacher charged with child sex crimes wants to plead insanity.
47-year-old Andrew Cowells is charged with vicarious sexual gratification with a teenage victim, child solicitation and possessing child pornography. 18 charges in all.
It was back in May prosecutors say he exhibited inappropriate behavior inside a classroom and a restroom at Concord High School back.
He’s also charged with voyeurism, battery and harassment by electronic means.
School leaders say none of the child porn allegedly found on Cowells’ phone involved Concord students.
A hearing about the insanity defense is set for early November.
