Christie Searl Miller, a 46-year-old former teacher at Lampasas Middle School in Texas, has been arrested and charged for allegedly purchasing alcohol for a of group minors.
According to authorities, Kempner — who taught seventh-grade in the school district for a decade — was placed on administrative leave on Monday, February 18, after school officials learned that she allegedly bought and provided alcohol to teenagers.
Police say that Miller allegedly provided alcohol such as rum and vodka to 14 and 15-year-olds during a “weekend gathering” at her home on Saturday, February 16. The arrest affidavit states that some teens drank so much that they became ill and started to throw up.
Teenagers who were at Miller’s house — located at County Road 3351 near Kempner, Texas — said that were given “a thermos full of vodka and a bottle of Bacardi rum.”
However, Miller claims that she purchased the bottle of Bacardi for herself and “was not aware” that the children had consumed alcohol until one of them became ill.
Authorities interviewed some of the teenagers who were present, with one claiming that after giving them the alcohol, Miller “cautioned the children to wait for Miller’s husband to go to bed” before they started drinking, according to KWTX. Additionally, Miller alleged that it was her own daughter who provided the group with alcohol.
Following her resignation from her teaching position and arrest on Wednesday, February 20, Miller was released after posting a $2500 bond.
