Student Faces Marijuana Charges

A 12-year-old boy was arrested earlier this month after an assistant principal at Fairfield Middle School found him to be in possession of marijuana on school grounds.

The juvenile, whose name is not being released, was arrested Dec. 4 at the school. The Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office said the boy was in possession of approximately 3 grams of marijuana, which the boy claimed was given to him by an older boy on the bus ride to school that morning.

J.R. Green, Superintendent of Fairfield County Schools, said the student was scheduled to appear before the District’s Disciplinary Officer, but the exact date of that hearing was not known at press time.
