Tribunal awaits pot-brownie baker

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Dougherty County school officials say the student accused of bringing pot brownies to school will face a tribunal.

19 year-old Justin Crutchfield was released on bond yesterday on a charge of disrupting a school.

Several Albany High students were hospitalized Monday after eating brownies Crutchfield told police he made with marijuana.

He will be suspended for 10 days then will be brought before a disciplinary tribunal. He could face additional charges.

Jack Willis, the Asst. Superintendent of Schools for Support Services, said, "We don't really know, we only know what he said, but we don't really know what all was in there. And we're not just talking about milk and flour and a little sugar. We want to know what else was in there, if anything. It may have just been the substance that he told us."

The brownies were sent to the GBI lab in Moultrie to be tested.

It could take up to a year to get the results, but Dougherty County School Police Chief Troy Conley asked for it to be expedited to find out exactly what was in the brownies.
