| March 10, 2018

GavelFRANKLIN, Pa. (EYT) – An Oil City man accused of making false claims about a substitute teacher was sentenced on Friday, March 9, in the Venango County Court of Common Pleas.

According to court documents, Judge Robert Boyer sentenced Bailey Andrew McMillen, 18, of Oil City, to perform 50 hours of community service.

McMillen pleaded guilty to one third-degree misdemeanor count of making false reports. He was also ordered to pay $550.00 in restitution to the known teacher.

A count of making false reports to falsely incriminate another was dismissed as part of the plea agreement.

Case details:

The Oil City Police Department said McMillen was enraged after an exchange on Wednesday, October 11, between his girlfriend and known substitute teacher. He then made public statements that the known teacher sold and used marijuana with him and another student at her home when they were both juveniles.

Oil City High School Principal Scott Stahl called the Oil City Police Department, and police then spoke with the teacher about his claims.

Police investigated the case as if the teacher and another male were victims of crimes.

At a point during the investigation, “McMillen admitted to police that he made the false statements to cause problems (for the known teacher) and the school district,” according to police.
