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.
