Elementary school teacher gave alcohol to teens, police say
A Howard Elementary School teacher was cited and released Jan. 30 on a charge of furnishing alcohol to minors, Medford police said.
Shelli Adams-Campos, 37, of the 1900 block of Layla Drive, Medford, allegedly gave alcoholic beverages to several youths between the ages of 16 and 18 on Jan. 20 while they were at her home.
"They are possibly known to her by her own children who are of similar age," said Detective Sgt. Mike Budreau of Medford police.
No children from the elementary school were involved in the incident.
Parents of one of the teens involved went to police with the information a week and a half after the incident.
Police declined to comment on the minors' level of intoxication, but said no one was physically hurt as a result of the event.
After an investigation, Adams-Campos was cited and released on one count of furnishing alcohol to a minor, a misdemeanor offense. The Jackson County District Attorney's Office is reviewing the case for prosecution. A conviction for first offenders results in a minimum $500 fine.
