A teacher at James M. Bennett High School in Salisbury, Maryland, was charged with attempted possession of an illegal drug Friday.
Elizabeth Day, the wife of Salisbury Mayor Jake Day, was charged with attempted possession of a controlled dangerous substance as well as contributing to certain conditions of a child, according to court records. Both charges are misdemeanors.
Elizabeth Day asked her student to get ADHD medication for her by text messages and Snapchat, according to police. The student told investigators that Day asked if they had any ADHD medication. The student told Day they did not, and Day asked the student if they could get any from friends, according to court records.
The student contacted Day at the direction of the sheriff’s office and agreed to exchange two prescription ADHD pills for $20 in a school locker room on December 10. The conversation was recorded by police.
