Principal Steals From Students

Sometimes you see a case in which you wonder whether people can sink much lower.  A principal at an elementary school in Clinton Township, Michigan, entered a guilty plea to embezzling over $400,000 from the school's child care program and parent-teacher organization over a seven-year period.  A press release issued by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Michigan (here) notes that under the guilty plea the principal will have to serve a sentence of 27 to 33 months and forfeit properties worth approximately $400,000.  A principal stealing from students causes far more damage than just the monetary costs in the betrayal of trust.
