Former Havasu teacher sentenced in drug case

LAKE HAVASU CITY, AZ - A former Lake Havasu City kindergarten teacher is going to prison after pleading guilty to selling prescription pills.

The Today's News-Herald reported Saturday that Stefanie Courson received a minimum sentence of a year and a half as part of a plea deal.

Mohave County Deputy Attorney Megan McCoy says Courson will receive credit for time already served. Courson will be eligible to get out on good behavior after serving 85 percent of her sentence.

Prosecutors say Courson sold hundreds of prescription drugs to an undercover police detective, leading to her arrest in December.

She pleaded guilty to solicitation of sale of narcotic drugs. In exchange, prosecutors dropped seven other counts.
