An Ohio elementary school teacher now faces multiple felonious criminal charges over new allegations that she not only allowed teenagers to buy but also use the psychedelic drug LSD in her private residence.
40-year-old Amy Panzeca, of Springboro, plead not guilty inside of a Warren County courtroom in southwest Ohio after being indicted on multiple charges including permitting drug abuse, endangering children, and permitting drug abuse.
While Panzeca remains free on bond currently she's not to have any contact with minor children and must submit to random drug screens until trial.
Prosecutors say that Panzeca’s fifteen-year-old son was responsible for trafficking LSD to at least 20 high school students. He is currently being detained in a juvenile detention center on felony drug charges.
Springboro police alongside the Warren County Drug Task Force found LSD and marijuana during a search of the family’s home back in May.
Investigators say that Panzeca teaches fifth grade at Five Points elementary school. The Springboro school district has placed her on paid leave pending conviction or exoneration during her upcoming trial.
The school district says she's been an educator for fifteen years, and that they've hired a long term substitute teacher in the midst of the controversy and that they've also contacted Panzeca’s students and their parents to inform them of the situation.
