This is every kids dream huh?   Police allege that former Colts Neck High School social studies teacher Megan Laboy collected more than $1,400 during the 2008-09 school year. She allegedly told her students she would give the money to charity in exchange for giving them extra credit on their final grades and exams.  However, police allege that she kept the money for herself.  Colts Neck police interviewed over 100 students as part of their investigation.  Kinda slow there in Colts Neck huh?

She was charged with third degree theft by deception and ROR’d.  She was not charged with official misconduct probably because she allegedly stole from the students and not the school.  However, I would still be careful here.

Assuming those charges are not filed, this is a tough case.  Clearly, she is not going to prison.  However, do you think that the State will give her a great deal after the police put in so much time?  Thus, this is the type of case that may require a ton of work to try to get the State to budge unless she just wants to throw in the towel early.
