High School Student Accused of Giving Teacher Marijuana-Laced Cookies

A Wilmington high school student accused of giving her teacher drug-laced cookies is going to trial.

Police said 17-year-old Elizabeth Ann Coleman put marijuana into cookies and gave them to a Spanish teacher at Laney High School. An arrest warrant said the teacher ate the cookies and became "mentally incapacitated."

Coleman is charged with two felony counts of contaminating food with a controlled substance. Assistant District Attorney Tom Old said Friday that the maximum jail sentence for a top-scale offender is 25 months.

The trial date is set for April 17 in New Hanover County Superior Court.

Court documents say Coleman has been released without bond into the custody of Ken Coleman.
