A Secaucus mom is accusing the high school of a double standard after evidence of a drug offense was destroyed by school officials.
The women’s son was arrested in December for having hash oil on school property although charges were eventually dropped. However, she is calling foul after Principal Dr. Robert Berckes and Assistant Principal Jeffrey Case destroyed evidence in a recent similar matter with a student.
Both Berckes and Case were suspended for one week with pay after the incident was discovered.
“I feel like it’s really unfair and I want everyone treated the same,” the mother told The Jersey Journal. “Why are you favoring this kid? Nobody knows why. We are hoping to work with the school and make things heard.”
The Journal was unable to get comments from any school officials, including Berckes and Superintendent Jennifer Montesano.
