Teacher put on probation for bringing gun to school

An English teacher was placed on probation for three years for bringing a gun to school. He pleaded guilty to one count of carrying a loaded firearm into a school zone, which is a felony charge.
The teacher faces two venues: the Superior Court for the criminal offense of which he was convicted and the State for his teaching credential. This is standard practice for anyone in California who has a professional and/or occupational license, certificate, permit or teaching credential.
The dual jurisdiction is not the only consequences. In some cases, the Federal criminal statutes can be used and a case is brought in US District Court; in some cases there is also civil liability.
