Elementary School Teacher Charged in Federal Case

HATTIESBURG, Miss. – A third grade teacher in Hattiesburg has been arrested as part of a drug and money laundering investigation.

Shalonda Hill, who is currently on administrative leave, appeared before a federal judge Wednesday for arraignment and pleaded not guilty to her alleged role in a multi-count indictment.  She is charged with conspiracy to commit money laundering, money laundering and engaging in monetary transactions of property derived from unlawful activity.  IRS, FBI and Drug agents arrested her and two other suspects last week after they said 18 kilos of cocaine and $1.1 million in cash were found at a Bassfiled home.

A spokesperson for the Hattiesburg Public School District said they are cooperating with the investigating agencies; and Hill will remain on administrative leave until her legal outcome is known.
