A teacher from Dundee Central School, NY gets jail for stealing class money.
Amy Corron, 44, was arrested in April by sheriff’s office investigators. She later admitted stealing about $7,940 from the Class of 2017, where she taught English and was the senior class advisor.
Corron resigned in January 2017, after school district officials learned of the possible theft and went to police.
“She stole from every member of the senior class,” said District Attorney Todd Casella. “She was supposed to advise them. The students trusted her and relied on her, and she betrayed that trust.”
The money, which the class had raised over the years by selling food at concession stands and from various fundraisers,
was going to be used for a senior trip.
Casella said after community members learned the money was stolen, they quickly raised money for the trip.
Corron was sentenced to five months in jail and five years of probation after pleading guilty to third-degree grand larceny. She will also have to pay restitution of nearly $8,000.
