Southern Lehigh School District teacher Garrett C. Dudeck was formally charged today with dealing methamphetamine.
Charges were filed against the 43-year-old Bethlehem man in federal court.
Dudeck, of the 1700 block of Watkins Street, sold 5.5 grams of the drug on Jan. 31 and Feb. 10 in his home, records say. He worked in the district for 21 years as a technology teacher in the middle and intermediate schools, records say.
Dudeck faces a maximum of 40 years in prison.
His attorney, Patrick Reilly, previously said Dudeck will never teach again.
A criminal complaint was filed against Dudeck in March, and he was put on house arrest. Federal officials have now formally charged him with the drug offense, a U.S. attorney’s office spokeswoman said.
