CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- A middle school teacher in Chesterfield has been indicted by a grand jury for smuggling drugs into a jail.

Falling Creek Middle School Algebra teacher Krystolyn Henderson was indicted for smuggling Schedule Three drugs to a man inside Sussex One prison, Crime Insider sources said. Legal expert Todd Stone said these cases happen all of the time and are some of the hardest to defend.

"There are video cameras everywhere and virtually everyone in there wants to cooperate and help themselves, so it's something that happens often, but people also get caught often," Stone said.

Henderson was charged and released and is due in court on June 12.

Chesterfield Schools sent a statement saying the employee has not been working for the school division pending the disposition of the legal charges
