BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. (WESH) – Two Florida high school teachers faced a judge for the first time Friday after being arrested for allegedly allowing multiple students to come over to their house and smoke marijuana.

James Brand and Amy O’Reilly-Brand are both charged with child neglect and contributing to the delinquency of a child, NBC affiliate WESH reports.

According to court records, the couple, both teachers at Viera High School, allowed students to come over to their house and smoke marijuana on multiple occasions since last summer.

The records state that several high school students told deputies they had smoked marijuana at the house and some said the pair supplied the marijuana themselves and smoked it with them.

The couple is also accused of allowing a man to live in their home and have a sexual relationship with a girl under the age of 18, according to WESH.

Brevard Public Schools released a statement Thursday saying both teachers have been placed on paid administrative leave.

The district also said: “As an organization, we are committed to thoroughly investigating any allegations of misconduct and taking appropriate steps based on the findings.”

The judge issued a $12,500 bond for both teachers. Both have bonded out and are expected to be released from the Brevard County Jail as early as Friday night.
