A New Jersey teacher caught running naked through an apartment complex is the first to lose his job under a speedier new tenure law.
 
It took four months from the time the Vineland Board of Education filed tenure charges against fifth-grade teacher Mark Bringhurst until the charges were resolved last week.
 
Previously, such cases normally took a year or more.
 
Bringhurst was arrested in March on lewdness charges after authorities say he ran naked through a Berlin Township apartment complex on a dare. The 2011-12 district teacher of the year pleaded guilty to acting in an improper manner.
 
His firing was handled through an arbitrator.
 
Bringhurst's lawyer and a New Jersey School Boards Association lawyer both tell The Press of Atlantic City the process was fair and quick.
