Cheektowaga- The threat of legal action forcing Cheektowaga police to not release audio transcripts between teachers and Dontre Jones while he awaited trial in the shooting death of Ira Watkins.

18 year old Watkins was killed back in May of 2011 in Cheektowaga Town Park.

Police believe the phone conversations between Cheektowaga Central High teachers and Jones could have altered the investigation.

The teachers in question have been put on leave by the school district...they're not facing any charges at this time.

Jones who was found guilty in the case, will be sentenced monday
