Cops: Teacher Gave Students Pot Brownies

Louisiana educator, 29, busted over baked goods

MAY 22--A Louisiana high school teacher was arrested yesterday on charges she gave pot brownies to a pair of female students, police report.

Camille Brennan, a 29-year-old New Orleans resident, was busted on two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and two counts of narcotics distribution for allegedly providing the baked goods to students at Archbishop Hannan High School.

According to the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office, Brennan, an English teacher, handed out the marijuana-laced brownies on May 1. Investigators learned of the incident when the parents of one girl--as well as the Catholic school’s principal--contacted cops later that evening.

When questioned by deputies, Brennan, pictured in the adjacent mug shot, reportedly admitted to giving the teens the brownies. After police opened an investigation, Brennan resigned her teaching post, and the school’s principal, Father Charles Latour, wrote parents to assure them that, “The care and safety of your sons and daughters is a priority I hold sacred.”

Brennan got her undergraduate and graduate degrees at Spring Hill College in Mobile, Alabama. The school describes itself as the first Catholic college in the southeast and the country’s third oldest Jesuit college. (1 page)
