Real-Life ‘Breaking Bad’ Teacher Convicted Of Making Meth

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — A former high school chemistry teacher convicted of cooking methamphetamines in New Mexico like the fictional Walter White character in the AMC-TV show “Breaking Bad” could see prison.

John W. Gose is scheduled Wednesday to be sentenced after pleading guilty to trafficking by manufacturing a controlled substance.

The 56-year-old Gose was arrested in October after police discovered glassware, rubber tubing, and chemicals used to cook methamphetamines during a routine traffic stop.

New Mexico State Police later found more chemicals and supplies at his southern New Mexico home.

He faces up to 20 1/2 years in prison.

Authorities say Gose taught high school science in El Paso, Texas, and middle school science in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

“Breaking Bad” follows a former high school teacher, played by Bryan Cranston, as he manufactures meth with a former student.
