    The New Hampshire Supreme Court has upheld the conviction of a former teacher who allowed her home to be used for the sale of heroin.

    Lisa Tagalakis Fedor was convicted last year of keeping or maintaining a common nuisance. She told police she knew the man to whom she rented a room was selling drugs, but in her appeal, argued she was wrongly convicted because he did so in front of the house, not inside it.

    In its ruling Tuesday, the court said the law doesn't require that a drug sale take place inside a building, but rather that the home was used to accomplish the sale.

    Fedor, who taught art at Central High School in Manchester, was fired after her arrest.

    Her lawyer, Richard Samdperil, said he was disappointed by the ruling.
