Former employee charged with stealing $114,000 of school money from Crockett County School in Tennessee.
Former Technology Coordinator Michael Maness resigned from the Crockett County School Department last May before being indicted Friday. Public Information Officer John Dunn of the Tennessee Comptroller’s Office said there was a cash shortage of $114,028.52 in the school district’s fund. “Crockett County is a small county and when you have $114,000, that has been misused, that’s a pretty large amount of money,” said Dunn. Dunn said the money was allegedly not used for school equipment. Much of the equipment that Mr. Maness purchased was used by him personally. He also sold a lot of the equipment that he bought with school funds online, that money should have been used to educate students. According to the Tennessee Comptrollers Office, Maness was indicted on one count of theft over $60,000 and four counts of official misconduct.
