COVINGTON, La. (AP) - A former teacher at a Catholic high school in suburban New Orleans has been charged with giving marijuana-laced brownies to two students.
Camille Brennan, a 29-year-old New Orleans resident, turned herself in Thursday to the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office.
Brennan is charged with two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and two counts of distribution of marijuana.
Sheriff’s Capt. George Bonnett wrote in an email that Brennan admitted Wednesday to giving marijuana-laced brownies to two students at Archbishop Hannan High School in Covington. Bonnett said the incident happened May 1, and one girl’s parents alerted the principal that day. In a letter to parents last month, the Rev. Charles Latour, the school’s principal, said he then asked the sheriff’s office to investigate.
“The care and safety of your sons and daughters is a priority I hold sacred,” Latour wrote. “We will continue to fully cooperate with the detectives from the Sheriff’s Office in this ongoing investigation.”
He sent an additional letter to parents Thursday, but declined comment when contacted.
Bonnett said there could be more charges in the case. He said Brennan has since resigned her job. Brennan left the earlier this month, spokeswoman Sara McDonald of the Archdiocese of New Orleans told Nola.comThe Times-Picayune (https://bit.ly/1R8gcsH).
Her attorney, Tim Upton, told WWL-TV (https://bit.ly/1PzBhic) he hasn’t received any evidence of a crime.
“At this time, my client has simply requested that we fully cooperate with our judicial system in every capacity,” Upton wrote.
