Bon Homme Teacher Arrested

Bon Homme Teacher Arrested

The Bon Homme School District Director of Choirs was arrested last week after his mother brought a batch of pot brownies to a card game at the Tabor Senior Center.

46-year-old Michael Koranda of Tabor was arrested on Wednesday January 5th on a charge of possession of a controlled drug or substance.

According to court documents, the Bon Homme County dispatch center received multiple calls about a possible poisoning at the Tabor Community Center on the evening of January 4th. Upon investigation by Bon Homme County Deputy Sheriff Joel Neuman, it was found out that Koranda baked the pan of marijuana brownies and Koranda’s mother took them to the senior center.

The Sheriff’s Office learned that Koranda was in Colorado over the holiday weekend and brought back products with marijuana. Neuman, along with Bon Homme County Sheriff Mark Mags, spoke with Koranda at the Tabor Elementary School where he admitted to bringing one pound of THC butter back from Colorado. Koranda stated that his mother unknowingly took the brownies to the senior center.

Koranda’s court date will be January 25th at 10:00 AM. Since the arrest, Koranda did post bond.

Koranda is still listed on the Bon Homme County School District’s staff listing. It’s unclear if he is still an employee of the school district or not.
