Norwood superintendent stole $60,000-plus by intercepting charter school checks.
Rob Amodio pleaded guilty to the theft, according to a release from Ohio Auditor of State Dave Yost’s office.
He intercepted checks and deposited to accounts he controlled by fraudulently endorsing them with the stamp of the school’s treasurer. Afterwards, he wrote checks to himself from those accounts and used them to pay for personal expenses at Capitol One, Citibank and Kohls.
Amodio was sentenced to two years of probation and ordered to pay restitution of $63,004. The school district received a full repayment from his attorney on the same day.
According to the Auditor, “This thief capitalized on a perfect storm of internal control breakdowns”.
