Arkansas teacher pleads not guilty to drug, weapons charges
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — A teacher at an Arkansas charter school has pleaded not guilty to drug and weapons charges that were filed after sheriff’s deputies allegedly found four pounds of cocaine and six weapons in her home.
The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office says 39-year-old Shernetta Ann Bogard was arrested on Thursday in Little Rock on a total of 10 charges.
Court records indicate that Bogard pleaded not guilty on Friday. Pulaski County Jail records indicate that she remained in custody Tuesday pending posting of bond. The records do not indicate if she is represented by an attorney.
An arrest report identifies her as a teacher at Little Rock Preparatory Academy, a public charter school.
An archived online employee directory lists Bogard as a third-grade instructor at its primary school.
