Metro Councilman completes "john school"

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Metro Nashville Councilman Brady Banks has been cleared of a charge of patronizing prostitution.

The Tennessean reported the Davidson County district attorney general's office said Monday that Banks had completed the city's "john school" for first-time offenders.

Banks reached an agreement with prosecutors that he would complete the course and the charge would be dropped.

The first-term council member could still face some political fallout from his Feb. 16 arrest at a city hotel during an undercover Metro Police prostitution sting.

Banks admitted his mistake, but said he would remain in office. Some residents of his district have talked of trying to recall him.
