Librarian Crime

What was John Ashcroft thinking when he was meddling in the libraries? (Report)  Was he thinking that the librarians might be involved in criminal activity?  No way, not the librarians.

In the posts of  December 6th and December 30th are reported two different incidents of librarians being charged with criminal activity.  The Law Librarian  Blog reports of another instance.  It seems that a "Homer Township's former library director was sentenced" "to six months in the Will County jail for stealing more than $100,000 from the library district."  It sounds like a case of basic embezzlement through use of two sets of books.
