An Athens teacher is facing a charge of using a forged prescription to get hydrocodone pills.
Casey Little, 35, was arrested May 22 and charged with attempting to commit a controlled substance crime. Little is a teacher at Athens Renaissance School, district officials confirmed to WAAY 31.
Decatur police said Little tried to use a forged prescription at the CVS on Beltline Road in Decatur. The forged prescription was for 10-milligram hydrocodone pills, according to her arrest warrant.
Athens City Schools Superintendent Trey Holladay said they were aware of Little's arrest and had spoken with her, but the district could not comment on the situation until after the board of education's next meeting on June 7.
"Since school is out, we can patiently wait on the situation to go through the proper lawful steps and we will make the proper decision for our children first and then our employees," Holladay said in an email.
Online records indicate Little posted a $1,000 bond the same day she was arrested.
