Former School Administrator charged with stealing $25,000 from Cimarron Montessori School in Oklahoma.
Deborah Cribley, 45, was charged Monday with three felony counts of embezzlement accusing her of taking more than $25,000 from the school over a six-year period. On April 17, 2018, police met with Deborah Wilczek and Tara Ramos, two members of the board of trustees for Cimarron Montessori School. Wilczek told Detective Brad Pritchett, the board found several discrepancies in the financials that were not explainable. On April 2, 2018, the board met to review the financial documents from August 2017 to March 2018. Wilczek said there were obvious discrepancies, according to the affidavit. Wilczek said the board met with Cribley and told her she could resign or they would terminate her. The board began to look into the financials for Cimarron Montessori. She said when the statement for the school’s Walmart card arrived, they noticed charges for makeup, self tanner and other items purchased that were not for the school, according to the affidavit. Cribley faces up to 10 years in prison, a fine of up to $10,000 and restitution on that embezzlement charge. She faces up to five years in prison, a fine of up to $5,000 and restitution on the other two charges, accusing her of taking more than $1,000 from one of the school’s bank accounts.
