A New Jersey teacher who used a fake doctor's note for missing 33 days of work is going to prison.
      

A judge sentenced Stanley Williams to 364 days behind bars and ordered the 57-year-old to surrender his teaching certificate.       
The special education teacher at New Brunswick High School missed 33 days, including 23 unpaid days, during the 2006-2007 school year. School officials asked for medical documentation to explain the missed time.
      
Authorities say Williams tried to justify the absences after he obtained a forged prescription blank with the name of a Newark pediatrician.
      
Williams pleaded guilty to a count of uttering a forged instrument. As part of his punishment, he can never again hold a public job in the state of New Jersey.
