    The report alleges that Stetina, of Millsboro, DE, provided alcohol and marijuana to the student on at least two occasions.

    He has been charged with two counts of Distribution of a Non-Narcotic Controlled Substance to a Minor, Endangering the Welfare of a Child, and Providing Alcohol to an Underage Person.
