— A former elementary school teacher facing charges that she snorted heroin in a jail bathroom waived her right to a preliminary hearing Wednesday.

Katie M. Luessenhop, 27, formerly of Lake Geneva, was sentenced in June to six months in jail and three years probation on two counts of felony possession of heroin and one count of felony bail jumping.


Luessenhop is now charged with possession of narcotics after a random drug test came back positive for morphine, a metabolite of heroin, according to the criminal complaint.


She admitted to snorting a line of heroin in a Huber dormitory bathroom at the Walworth County Jail, according to the complaint. The drug was purchased from another inmate who also had work release privileges, according to the complaint.
