Farmville Teacher Arrested

Forty-five-year-old Sandra Stargardt is a social studies teacher at the school. She faces a child abduction charge in Amelia County, Virginia, and was arrested on extradition charges. Officials say the arrest did not take place in front of children. School officials say Stargardt is currently suspended with pay pending the criminal case, and that a complete background check was performed when Stargardt was hired in August 2003. No details on the abduction charge were available.

Stargardt was released on bond following her first court appearance Wednesday. Another court date is scheduled later this month.
