JEFFERSONVILLE. Ind. (WDRB) -- Police say they found drugs, a gun, and teens drinking alcohol at the home of a JCPS teacher.
Neighbors called police in October because they were hearing gunshots, and they had to be evacuated from their homes because of the danger. "I know what a gunshot sounds like, versus a firecracker," said Duane Riggs, a neighbor. He says he was not surprised by what he was hearing outside of his home in Jeffersonville, Indiana in October. "My understanding is I think the police are worn out from repeatedly being there," he added.
Police confirm it was not the first time dealing with Jennifer Kemp's home. "Ms. Kemp had been warned about illegal activity happening there with minors and that's something they had responded to and discussed in the past. And unfortunately on that day that conduct was continuing," said Clark County Chief Deputy Prosecutor Jeremy Mull.
In October, police arrived after neighbors reported hearing gunshots. They discovered several minors inside drinking alcohol, and heard someone pumping a shotgun. Police found the gun and pills inside.
Several teens were arrested, including three of Kemp's sons. One of them admitted to firing the shotgun.
"It's a troubling situation where you have this adult in the home with minors there drinking and drug activity taking place," said Mull. Even more troubling, Kemp has been a middle school teacher with JCPS for 17 years, most recently at Moore Traditional School.
She has been taken off of instructional duty during the investigation. Kemp was charged with maintaining a common nuisance--a felony. In 2010, Kemp was written up by JCPS for hitting a student in class at Moore.
"I would think if she was teaching my children they'd be removed from school," said Riggs. Weeks earlier she was charged with animal cruelty after her dog was found roaming the streets.
