MARSHALL COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - Prosecutors have dropped the case against a former Boaz teacher charged with sexual contact with a student and sex abuse.

Justin Beam was a math teacher and basketball coach at Boaz Middle School before being indicted earlier this year.

Following a motion by the state, a Marshall County judge dismissed the case without costs on Tuesday.

Prosecutors say they agreed to the dismissal on the agreement that Beam would not contest his teaching certificate being revoked. Prosecutors said their goal was to make sure he was not teaching again and that his license cannot be reinstated.
