(WLFI) — An update to a story WLFI reported last November. A former Northwestern Indiana teacher accused of using cocaine in her classroom has pleaded guilty to possessing the drug. 24-year-old Samantha Cox entered the plea Thursday under an agreement with prosecutors.
It recommends she be sentenced to 12 months of probation and complete a drug treatment program. Cox is scheduled to be sentenced September 14th.
She was arrested in November on cocaine and drug paraphernalia possession charges after students at Lake Central High School in St. John reported seeing the English teacher with the drug and posted a video online
