    Teacher charged after dogs smell drugs

    GALVESTON, Texas - A high school teacher faces marijuana possession charges after drug-sniffing dogs on a routine campus sweep led police to his classroom desk, authorities said.

    No drugs were found in the desk of Stakely McConnell, a Spanish teacher at Ball High School. Instead, the dogs smelled papers that had a marijuana odor transferred from McConnell's hands, school police chief LeeRoy Amador said.

    McConnell, 25, admitted to smoking marijuana over the weekend, Amador said.

    Authorities said they later found a half cigarette of marijuana in his car, but that there is no evidence or suspicion that students were involved in the alleged drug use.

    McConnell was placed on administrative leave after being arrested on campus Tuesday.

    Possession of marijuana carries a maximum sentence of one year in prison and a $4,000 fine. Because the alleged discovery happened in a drug-free zone, the district attorney can increase the charge to a state jail felony, which carries a maximum two-year sentence and $10,000 fine.

    I'm not pro pot but, This country has changed for the worse when you no longer need to get caught commiting a crime to be charged and convicted.

    Intent is now considered a crime.

    Or in this case, you are guilty if a dog says you are guilty!

    It's sad that you can get wasted, get behind the wheel and kill somebody by running them over, and still get out of jail before the teacher who had a roach sitting in his car.
    Neither are acceptable, but the punishment needs to fit the crime.

    Teachers are molding the students to be social miscreants.
    Where is Ron Simmons to enlighten the situation?
