COPS: Former teacher nabbed with nearly half-pound of pot

ALBANY, Ga. — Dontreal Williams, a former Dougherty County middle-school teacher already facing drug charges in Mitchell County, was arrested Wednesday night when drug agents found between a quarter and a half pound of marijuana in his car.

Williams has been charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, Maj. Bill Berry, the commander of the Albany Dougherty Drug Unit said. He was stopped near Slappey Boulevard for a traffic offense when agents discovered the pot.

In January, the Dougherty County Board of Education accepted Williams' resignation, making it effective November 30, 2012 for personal reasons just days after he was arrested in Mitchell County on drug charges.

R.D. Harter, spokesperson for the system, says that Williams was pulled from classroom work immediately following his initial arrest in Camilla.

Despite the fact former Superintendent Joshua Murfree notified the Georgia Professional Standards Commission of the felony drug charge facing the teacher, the GPSC website still lists Williams as having a valid teaching certificate, which is set to expire June 30, 2013.

It's unknown if he is still teaching, however Harter did confirm that he no longer works for the district.

Officially, he's charged with a window tint violation, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of drug-related objects.

Good point SMHgain...it hasn't been over a year, but rather just short of 1/2 a year at best.

It's a shame how drugs control one's life. Drugs was more important to him than a career of teaching young kids. Then again, maybe the kids drove him to use drugs.

If it happened 10 years ago, they would still report it. It's news, whether it's old news or current news.

NOT HARDLY, HE JUST RECENTLY RECIEVED 21YRS PROBATION. HE MIGHT NOT HAVE MADE HIS FIRST REPORT YET. THE PROBATION IS VIOLATED. ADIOS.

How does a teacher go from living a life of helping educate the youth of S.W. Georgia to becoming the antithesis of a teacher?

The fact he was a teacher THIS school year is reason enough for the Herald to include it in the article. They aren't smearing the DCSS only reporting the truth. If he was a former cop that resigned 3 months ago would you say the same thing?
