CONCORD, N.H. (AP) – A judge has ruled that a New Hampshire high school can try again to suspend a student who allegedly arranged a drug deal with another school’s principal through text messages.

Concord High School had to abandon its first attempt to suspend 17-year-old high school senior John Huckins after the school violated its own suspension rules.

Huckins was charged in March with setting up a drug deal with Bishop Brady High School principal Jean Barker on a student cell phone she had confiscated.

Huckins thought he was texting a friend when he exchanged texts with Barker.

He is still in school as he waits for a new hearing.
