Teacher facing drug charges must surrender teaching license

July 11, 2018

ALEXANDER, N.D. (AP) — A teacher facing drug and child endangerment charges in McKenzie County must surrender her state teaching license as part of a deal with prosecutors to avoid trial.

Regie Hill was charged in February after sheriff’s deputies said they found drugs and related items in reach of Hill’s children in her home. Hill at the time was a science teacher in Alexander.

Superintendent Leslie Bieber tells The Bismarck Tribune that Hill resigned in March.

Under Hill’s deal with prosecutors, the criminal charges against her will be dismissed if she stays out of trouble for the next 1 ½ years, submits to random drug testing, surrenders her state teaching license and testifies in another criminal case.
