Teacher’s license suspended in Murfreesboro after facing charges

Posted on Friday, October 14th, 2016    

An Eagleville School teacher had her professional license suspended after authorities alleged she was involved in illegal activities, a report of Daily News Journal reported on October 11.

Authorities from Rutherford County are currently investigating 34-year-old Jessica Holland after she was accused of theft and obtaining controlled substances from the school. The school’s representative James Evans told reports that charges have been filed against Holland due to a suspicion that she stole an amount of not more than $500. Holland, who was a first-grade teacher and a middle school softball coach, was suspected of abusing the school’s narcotics medication. The suspension was ordered after Holland was taken into custody and then later was discharged after posting a $4,000 bond. The teacher had no violation histories before she was hired in 2014, reports also said.

Financial problems often result when teachers have been barred from practicing their professions. However, if you believe that a suspension is likely to happen, working with a skilled license defense attorney is important, especially if you heavily depend on your income as a teacher.
