    A former New Hampshire substitute teacher is facing child endangerment charges after she allegedly invited middle school students to smoke marijuana.

    Rochester resident Elisha Mahar, 20, who worked at the Somersworth Middle School, is facing four counts of endangering the welfare of a child, according to Somersworth police.

    The police investigation began on Oct. 13 after school officials reported that Mahar gave a vape smoking device to a student and invited students to smoke marijuana while she still worked at the school.

    Mahar was arrested on a warrant Thursday afternoon and was released on $5,000 personal recognizance bail pending a court date on Dec. 26.
