Kidney Recipient Arrested on Drug Charges

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - A teenager who made national headlines three years ago when he received a transplanted kidney from his science teacher was arrested on drug charges along with 10 other people rounded up in a raid.

Michael Carter was 14 and had renal disease when he received the kidney from Jane Smith, his science teacher at a Fayetteville middle school. Smith was awarded the National Kidney Foundation's Gift of Life medal in 2000 for the organ donation.

Carter was charged Wednesday with maintaining a dwelling for drug activity and conspiracy to sell and deliver cocaine.

Sheriff's deputies reported taking four firearms, nearly $1,300 in cash, 215 rounds of ammunition and small amounts of crack cocaine, marijuana and the prescription drug Percocet from the house south of Fayetteville.

Undercover investigators had monitored the house for about a year.

Carter has had one other brush with the law since the transplant, when he was charged last year with trying to steal a forklift.


Well that's depressing.
