Arraignment for former Taft High students accused of selling Xanax pushed back to September

The arraignment for two former Taft Union High School students accused of trafficking in the prescription anti-anxiety drug Xanax has been delayed again until September.

The pair are scheduled to appear in Lamont branch of Kern County Superior Court on Sept. 1 for a continued arraignment and status conference on the case.

Kalieb Williams and Karine Agadjanova, both 18, are free on $25,000 bail.

The pair was arrested at the school on April 21 after an investigation started when a minor, also a student at TUHS, was found under the influence of a drug at the school.

Charges were filed in June against Williams and Agadjanova.

They are both charged with felony counts of transporting or selling a narcotic or controlled substance, selling or furnishing a controlled substance to a minor and a misdemeanor count of possession of a controlled substance.
