Loggers’ Run Middle School teacher Sheena Studstill was arrested Saturday by Palm Beach Gardens police and charged with Grand Theft. Booked late at night, she was released Sunday just before noon.
We attempted to contact the school and the school district but were unable to reach anyone who could comment. The principal and vice-principals were in a meeting, and the person answering the phone at the school district communications office did not seem to understand the English language, nor how to operate their phone system.
Ms. Studstill, whose reported address is in Riviera Beach, has had quite a few cases in Palm Beach County. Court records show felony drug court from back in 2003, a 2004 domestic battery charge that was dropped, criminal traffic charges from 2009 and 2012, and several other traffic cases. All of the criminal charges against her in the past were dropped by prosecutors.
The 2003 and 2004 incidents led to state discipline in 2007 (yes, they move that slow) regarding her teacher’s license, including a letter of reprimand and 2 years probation. It is our understanding that she teaches Civics, Social Studies and/or History, and she is not in school today.
