Teacher accused of possessing heroin

A State Crime Lab report indicates the second grade teacher arrested outside Walworth Elementary School was in possession of both cocaine and heroin.

Katie M. Luessenhop, 26, of Darien pleaded not guilty Oct. 3 to misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance on or near certain places, but the Walworth County District Attorney's office dropped that charge Nov. 5.

She now faces a misdemeanor count of possession of cocaine on or near a school and a felony count of possession of narcotic drugs on or near a school.

According to a criminal complaint, police were called to Walworth Elementary School around 8:15 p.m. Sept. 18.

The complaint states Luessenhop gave officers a small, wrapped container that she said contained cocaine, as well as a folder containing powder. A search of her handbag turned up another small bag of powder.

The complaint states the samples were sent to the State Crime Lab, which found one sample tested positive for cocaine; the other two tested positive for heroin.

Luessenhop is scheduled to appear in Walworth County Circuit Court for a preliminary hearing Dec. 10. She is on a leave of absence from her job.
