Teacher busted on drug charges

Out on bail after Oct. 26 arrest

A Foothill High teacher is out on bail after being arrested Oct. 26 on drug charges.

Stephanie Deffner, 32, was arrested on Springtown Boulevard in Livermore at about 3:40 p.m., a police spokeswoman said. Deffner was charged with one count of possession of a controlled substance and one count of being under the influence of a controlled substance, according to the spokeswoman.

Controlled substances include cocaine, heroin and prescription drugs such as codeine or hydrocodone, according to California state law.

Deffner, of Pleasanton, teaches economics and AP human geography, the study of the world, its people, communities and cultures.

She was booked into Santa Rita Jail in Dublin; she was released on $12,500 bail, according to reports.

Can you believe this?
How can we have faith in educators, leaders, and government...when they can not keep their hands to themselves, behave with dignity, and not steal from us in one form or another?

I hope that she receives medical treatment for her addiction. In my opinion, she is also deserving of jail time.
