Albany - A Dougherty County teacher is out of jail after being arrested for pawning stolen band instruments. Regina Mitchell was released from jail on a $6,000 bond Friday.

The former language-arts teacher at Radium Springs Middle School is charged with three counts of theft by receiving. She'll face more charges if police prove she actually stole the instruments pawned at Albany Furniture and Pawn on Broad Avenue.

A parent recognized her child's clarinet in the store and contacted police. Mitchell resigned earlier this month, as the school system was preparing to fire her.

This isn't Mitchell's first legal trouble. In 2001, she was arrested for criminal trespassing. In 2002, she pleaded guilty to aggravated assault and battery.
