North Magoffin Elementary School teacher Darrell Patrick could soon be answering to some very serious drug charges. Detectives with the Operation UNITE drug task force served a search warrant at Patrick's Salyersville home over the weekend following a three-month-long investigation into his alleged dealing of oxycodone.
Detective Dan Smoot tells NEWSFIRST that an informant was able to purchase drugs from Patrick and that more evidence of drug dealing was found in Patrick's home. Smoot says the evidence will be presented to a grand jury in hopes of obtaining an indictment. Smoot also says that it appears Patrick brought the prescription painkillers across state lines.
School officials say that Patrick currently works in a collaborative role at North Magoffin Elementary school and works mostly with third and fourth grade students. He also assists with cafeteria and detention supervision.
Superintendent Joe Hunley says that he has not been made aware of the pending charges against Patrick and that Patrick is still an employee of the district. Hunley adds that if charges are filed, he would then seek legal counsel from the district as to Patrick's future.
Investigators say there is no evidence that Patrick was involved with any illegal activity on school property or with any students.
A Magoffin County teacher, arrested earlier this week on drug charges, will wait a little longer for his day in court.
A judge rescheduled 46 year old Darrell Patrick's court date for November 13th to give a new attorney time to get up to speed with the case.
Operation UNITE officials raided Patrick's home last weekend and say he was selling Oxycodone.
Patrick was a one time principal and is a teacher at North Magoffin Elementary School.
UNITE officials are concerned charges against a Magoffin County teacher might be dismissed after the grand jury did not hear the case.
46 year old Darrell Patrick was arrested and charged with drug trafficking in October.
If he is not indicted by the end of December, charges in district court will be dismissed.
UNITE detectives say they were in court, ready to present the case to the grand jury Thursday, but the commonwealth's attorney decided not to.
UNITE officials worry Patrick will be set free and back at school, but prosecutors say they still plan to seek an indictment next year.
UNITE detectives say they have plenty of proof that North Magoffin Elementary School teacher Darrell Patrick was selling OxyCodone from his home.
“We feel we have a very strong investigation. We're ready to present it and we're ready to try it. We could try it today,” Dan Smoot said.
But they have not gotten that chance. The Magoffin County Commonwealth's Attorney did not present the case to the grand jury Thursday.
“There wasn't sufficient time to prepare the case for indictment to the grand jury,” Tyler Green Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney.
remember this,congradulations to the detectives that worked this case .,an finally got an indictment.to think he is still recieving his teachers salary, turns my stomach.

My guess is that they are already bitter that Darrell has acquired a nice home, money in the bank, a beautiful classy wife and 3 beautiful daughters. People are always so happy to see a successful person fall on their face. My advice to them. Go to college(the government will pay for it) get a degree and work to acquire the things you want!! Redirect that jealousy and bitterness into something positive. Darrelll will bounce back because he has ambition and grit.....you will still be where you are if you don't do the same.
Darrell will bounce back. If you knew Darrell personally, you would know what a good, decent, hardworking man that he is and has been all of his life. I don't uphold for anybody selling pills. But, the truth is that the x-sheriff has always had it out for this set of Patrick's. If he did what he is accused of then, yes, it was wrong. But, why were the major drug dealers in this county aloud to keep selling and are still selling. Could there have been a kick back somewhere? Darrell does not need to be made an example of. That should be left to the BIG drug dealers who are selling wide open. If he is guilty, put him in a 6 month rehab so he can get his life back and go after the big dogs that are destroying our youth. No way in the world would Darrell ever have sold anything to a child, if he did anything at all. Hang in there Darrell, we're behind you all the way. Take care.

You don't have to sell me on Darrell. I have known him practically my whole life and I know what a hard working man he is. Yes he did screw up but I think he they are making an examplr out of him. I also know what you are taling about regarding Bob and the Patricks. We all know the tricks Bob would pull if he didn't have what he needed to make an arrest. He was a great teacher and I would have to see it to believe about selling to kids....people are maing that part up. Talk about a mad bunch when he does bounce back. They all want to see him fall on his face but they don't mention these major drug dealers who really actually deal drugs. Not an interesting enough story for them I guess.

If these people would put there time into making the school system better, instead of using there time on trying to put someone down, and kicking them when they are down, that they are jealous of, the school system would might have a school that the county could actually be proud of! but they are a few jealous people that is incharge that was behind all this, and boy can i not wait till this is over,,, If you are this jealous now of Darrell, Lord help you and your heart when it is over,,, the lord said the revenge is mine,, I think Darrell will play that roll on you,, you have let your mouth overload you ass!!! You know he has kids, and Darrell loves his kids, and was very good to all the kids, and look at his test scores when he was principal and look at the other schools test scores, and also he was assigned principal over 2 schools on the oppisite end of the county,, trying to punish him then, and he worked his ass off to make sure those 2 schools was out front of the rest of the schools in the county,, I think he has proved he was a good tool for the school system,, and JEALOUS people could not handle it,, they do not care about the kids, just a couple feels threatened and don't like him for ovious reasons, think you all know why too!!!
Need to start at the top and elimate 2 or 3 of the leaders they call themselves and this issue would be delt with in a personal matter instead of a Jealous matter!

And what about the trash that does not get caught,, first of all Darrell is not trash, has worked very hard, his mother is one of the finest people that you will ever meet, and so is his wife, and has 3 beautiful daughters, that he loves dearly, and your opion is like asshole everybody has 1 and some times I run into people that is one! If these people would get on here and send the message about people that sells wide open to anyone that has $40 and has 4 or 5 different joints set up, I could really feel your fustration, but this is not the case here! But this all about someone Darrell has made Jealous about something of the years,, sorry you are such a JEALOUS person!

The news clearly stated that he did not do anything illegal on school property. Not during or after school hours...that never happened. Perhaps he is no better than John.Q but the the point is neither he or his entire life and lifes work should be defined by this incident. He has been an asset to the school system and the community. In my opinion the life one has lead up to the point of their mistake and the potential they have should be considered. The likelihood of Darrell doing this again is slim to none. Unlike those who hae made their living committing welfare fraud and selling drugs, as that is their only recourse. As for the guns, there is nothing illegal about owning guns. The guns he had were all properly registered......bet they won't take that into consideration when they get "lost" in evidence. Those guns will end up in some crooked cops house like so many before them. I'm so sick of the KSP rejects that couldn't make the cut acting so self righteous about drugs. They just needed a job created for the because they don't have the brains, education, mental stability, or physical requirements to make it as a State Cop. They don't have enough education on the laws to properly enforce them. Why do you think the budget for those clowns got cut so drastically??? Any dumbas* can pull people over and send a junkie in to by drugs but a real cop that does not make.

Boy would I love to talk to you!! I know some of what you are talking about and you are so right!!! The "leaders" you are talking about are a joke. They couldn't stand it because Darrell wouldn't kiss their ass and he was smarter and more talented than them!! Darrell had the courage to speak up when thigs were not right and now he's paying for it. Magoffin County schools will remain the underbelly of the U.S.A untill we get some real educators and less politians in there. It's a shame that over half of our graduates have to take remedial English and Math when they enter college because they can't score high enough on the entrance exam!!! Don't even get me started about how little they know about U.S History.

Gummybear I think you might ortta pull up a previous post called "Does anyone know what happens when you've been charged with fraud". Maybe then you'll have alittle bit more understanding, that people are innocent, and should be treated as such, until they are proved guilty. Unless you're one of those that are always throwing stones at glass houses.

The key word you used is "accused". Exactly, he has been ACCUSED, not found guilty by a court of his peers. This is AMERICA you are assumed innocent until PROVEN guilty. So, yes he does deserve his pay until then. WAKE UP AMERICA!!!!

If he was caught selling drugs,it really doesn't matter if he is president of the United States or if he was voted father of the year, he still committed a crime. The law is the law and should apply equally to all. If he is proven guilty he should be removed immediately from the school where are children would be exposed. No one should be jealous of this man and I doubt if they are.

My panties are exactly where they need to be...im my husbands teeth. All jokes a side I think you may have missed my point. I'm not denying he sold drugs. I am simply saying that it should not define hhim as a person because he has done a lot of other good things. He has a lot going for him and that is a good indicator he won't screw it up again. As for the gun charges, everyone I know has a scanner. A number of us listened to the police run the numbers of those guns and they were all clean. It took a while. I don't claim to be an expert on the law but I think the reason it's FEDERAL is the amount sold or the number of sales made. Again , I don't know that, it's just my best guess as I heard w/ my own ears about the guns being legal. We all have our own opinions on Darrell and what his punishment should be. no matter how harshly you express yours doesn't matter because there just opinions. You seem to be bent on saying nasty things so my guess is you are just entertaining yourseld and you really don't care that much anyway. P.S If I could do that I woldnt be here talking to you.

you say my opinion dont matter then y r u getting so mad?in the commonwealth of ky,anyone caught with drugs with intent to sell ,can be a felony,when u add the large amount of firearms (even though)they were all legal as u say is a double whammy.A DRUG DEALER WITH A GUN ,gee-OH,HOW ABSOLUTLY CLUELESS YOU ARE.now im done with you ,i will not respond to you again ,now you have a real nice day.
