Teacher admits she gave students pot brownies

COVINGTON, LA (WVUE) - The St. Tammany Parish District Attorney's office says a former teacher at Archbishop Hannan High School pleaded guilty Nov. 10 to two counts of distribution of marijuana to a student and two counts of obstruction of justice.

Camille Breaux Brennan, 31, admitted that she supplied marijuana-laced brownies to two students last year. She is expected to receive a 10-year jail sentence with seven of the years suspended. Upon her release she will likely be on probation for five years. Brennan will also be ordered to undergo substance abuse and mental health evaluations and have no unsupervised contact with minors. The victims and their parents agreed with the plea deal.

Brennan admitted to giving the marijuana-laced brownies to two Hannan students on May 1, 2015. She also admitted to asking the students to cover up the crime. Brennan destroyed a written statement by one of the student. After eating the brownies, one of the student became ill and told a family member that she had eaten two brownies containing marijuana that came from Brennan. The family member also uncovered conversations between Brennan and the student on social media. Brennan told authorities she gave the students the brownies in an effort to make them happy. She was suspended, then fired from Hannan.

Brennan will be sentenced on Jan. 5.
