Georgia teacher Randolphe Forde accused of putting a 'hit' on his student

Mundy's Mill High School teacher Randolphe Forde is charged with making terroristic threats after allegedly putting a "hit" on one of his students.
A Georgia high school teacher is being investigated for asking a student to put a “hit” on another student last month.
Randolphe Forde, a teacher at Mundy's Mill High School in Atlanta, has been charged with making terroristic threats. He was released on bond and is currently on leave from his job with pay. He will face an employment hearing in December, said school district spokesman Charles White.
A Clayton County Police report says that Forde pulled a student off a school bus on October 9 and told him he "would pay him to kill the victim." Forde then wrote the 16-year-old victim-to-be's name on a piece of paper, CNN reports.
Terance Madden, the attorney representing Forde's alleged target and family, says problems between the teacher and the student go back to Sept. 29, when "Forde allegedly called my client outside the class and asked him if he is gay."
Madden's statement says the two also argued in class on or around Sept. 30, and Forde threatened to "hit him in his 'effin mouth."
The statement says the school failed to take action against Forde, though the student reported the fight, the threat and the incident outside the classroom to the vice principal. The student’s mother pulled him out of school, fearing for his safety. A police report was filed on Oct. 12.
"Finally, Mr. Forde was allegedly removed from the school after the police report was filed, and my client was able to return to school," Madden said. "An arrest was made on or about Oct. 14. Mr. Forde bonded out on $10,000 bond and waived his preliminary hearing."
Forde's attorney was quoted by CNN affiliate WSB-TV saying that Forde had been joking and had never revealed a name to anyone.
The teacher's employment hearing originally was set for today, but it was postponed because of the state's open meetings law, which requires proper prior notice of a scheduled session, according to CNN.
Madden believes the hearing was postponed because of the publicity the investigation has been receiving.
White refused to comment on the matter, but said, "There are definitely multiple sides to any story."
