Stephanie Deffner, 32, was arrested at about 3:40 p.m. Oct. 26 -- not long after school let out -- during a police stakeout of the Springtown Motel in Livermore. The stakeout was for another woman allegedly selling drugs out of a motel room; that woman joined Deffner in Deffner's car where the two were observed heating aluminum foil to smoke the drug, according to court records.
In a search, Deffner was found to be in possession of oxymorphone and a single methadone pill.
Deffner remains free on bond pending a court appearance Jan. 5. The prosecutor in the case noted that she is eligible for a drug diversion sentence, which could expunge her record.
It has been reported that the Pleasanton school board dismissed Deffner at its last meeting, Dec. 13.
