A high school teacher is facing drug distribution charges for allegedly giving pot candies to two students after having lunch with them off campus in Louisville.
Forty-nine-year-old Brian Edward duFresne was arrested Tuesday and has been suspended from his job as a choir director and language arts teacher at Monarch High School. He is out on bond but couldn't be reached Thursday.
According to court documents, two 18-year-old old male students invited their teacher to lunch on Feb. 22. On the drive back to school, they told police that he gave them each a marijuana candy.
A school and police investigation began after an ex-girlfriend of one of the teens became suspicious after he seemed high in class and she later recorded a conversation with him about it.
