Defended hearing for teacher adjourned

A defended hearing for a teacher who denies charges of stealing a student's medication has been adjourned.

The teacher, who has name suppression, was due to appear in the Tauranga District Court today but the case will now be heard on September 12.

The woman has denied a charge of theft of the Class B controlled drug Concerta - a prescription drug which treats attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
