(Las Vegas, NV) — A Clark County School District teacher has been suspended for a second time after the district learned he is facing felony drug trafficking charges.
John Mannion was arrested in July after he sold Oxycontin to an undercover detective on three separate occasions.
Mannion breached his contract when he did not tell the district about the arrest.
“Teacher contracts stipulate that teachers must self-report any arrest. This person failed to do that. As well as fail to acknowledge to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Dept. that he was a CCSD employee,” says Fulkerson.
Mannion was suspended a few years back after being suspected of stealing booster donations in the range of $17,000. Mannion challenged his suspension and an arbitrator ruled in his favor in February 2012.
“An arbitrator found that at the time there was not enough evidence to say that he was embezzling money from the school,” says Fulkerson.
Mannion returned to the classroom on March 4th to teach physical education at Bonanza High School.
Mannion will meet with administrators next week. His preliminary criminal hearing is April 17th.
