New York teacher faces drug-related offenses and theft charges

When people are addicted to drugs, supporting the habit often becomes the only thing on their mind. For one music teacher in New York, an alleged heroin addiction has landed her in trouble with the law.

During a routine traffic stop, a trooper saw that the 32-year-old teacher had a tuba in the backseat of her car. That is what started the investigation into the woman's activities. State police say the woman admitted to pawning up to 50 stolen instruments. Her boyfriend allegedly was her accomplice. It is claimed that he would go with her to the pawnshops where they would alternate who would bring in the instruments.

The teacher is facing charges in two counties and various towns in connection with the drug-related offenses. She faces one count of criminal possession of a controlled substance 7th and one count of criminal possession of stolen property 3rd in Monroe County. She faces one count of grand larceny 3rd in Livingston County. Other charges are pending against her.

Her boyfriend faces charges of one count of criminal possession of a controlled substance 7th and one count of criminal possession of stolen property 3rd in Monroe County. He also has other charges pending in other towns.

It's important to remember that just because someone is arrested does not mean he or she is guilty. A defendant has a right to a fair trial. The prosecution must prove a defendant's guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Experienced New York criminal defense attorneys vigorously protect the rights of their clients, while working to build a strong defense.
