An investigation by the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office found James Brand, 50, and Amy O-Reilly Brand, 45, consumed marijuana with students at their home on multiple occasions. No criminal activity took place on school grounds.
State child welfare officials received a complaint earlier this month that the Viera High School teachers allowed a girl under the age of 18 to use marijuana and have a sexual relationship with a man who was also living at the home.
The couple was charged Thursday with child neglect and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Florida Today reports the teachers are on paid administrative leave pending an investigation. They are being held at a Brevard County jail on $12,500 bail. It's unclear if they had retained an attorney who could comment on the charges.
