The school music teacher accused of stealing instruments and selling them for cash to buy heroin was back in Irondequoit Town Court late Wednesday afternoon for a hearing.

Danielle Conner-Willowglade was in court for a hearing, but because she was already out on bail, the prosecution decided the hearing was unnecessary. The defense says they are looking for some type of plea offer, but the prosecution says that is not going to happen. Although, because a plea deal was requested, they will be back in court again Thursday to argue that.

What's likely to happen is the prosecution will show up and say they've already presented the case to the grand jury and the case will go from there.

Police say she stole 50 instruments from the school, pawned them and took that money to buy heroin. She was arrested three times last week.

Currently, Conner-Willowglade is on administrative leave from the Keshequa School District.
