A former Miramonte Elementary School teacher charged with lewd acts upon a child will no longer have to wear an electronic monitoring device.

Martin Springer will still have to stay far away from all parks and schools under the conditions of his release. The judge granted the defense's request despite the prosecution's objection.

Springer pleaded not guilty to committing three lewd acts on one of his young female students back in 2009. He is due in court again in March.
