Florida middle school teacher found guilty of selling drugs to students, court records say


A Florida former middle school teacher was found guilty Wednesday of selling illegal drugs to two of her students, according to court records.

A Hendry County jury found Maria Rivera, 37, guilty of numerous charges, including drug possession, selling within 1,000 feet of a school, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, the Miami Herald reported.

Formerly a teacher at Clewiston Middle, Rivera faces up to 35 years in prison when she’s sentenced. Sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 16.

A Hendry County Sheriff’s Office investigation, which began in December 2017, found that Rivera sold marijuana to two girls, ages 12 and 14.
