Teachers retain attorneys after heroin found in school bathroom

New York – A group of elementary school teachers have retained attorneys, refusing cooperation in an ongoing investigation linked to heroin and drug paraphernalia being found in a faculty bathroom. As reported by The Daily Caller, six teachers at Benjamin Cosor Elementary School in Fallsburg, N.Y. hired lawyers after a union advised them to do so.

The investigation began after a heroin baggie was discovered in a bathroom on Feb. 11. Heroin and paraphernalia were also reportedly found in the same bathroom in December. Teachers complained that investigators have since made visits to the school while kids were around during school hours.

Local attorney Jared Hart, who is representing one of the teachers, is quoted as stating of his client, “He’s embarrassed, and he’s also angry that he has to defend himself… He doesn’t feel that he has to be defending himself against something he’s not involved in.”

Jim Farrell, the Sullivan County district attorney, who is part of the investigation, is quoted as stating of the matter, “We intend to get to the bottom of this because, at this point, we feel there’s a potential danger to the students in that school.”
