The jury also found Doty used $6,500 in school system money to purchase items to be used as decorations for her son’s wedding including bread baskets, easels, drink dispensers, columns, and decorative urns. Doty picked the items up from the school in July 2015 and they were used in the wedding. She later tried to cover up the purchase. Judge Faber sentenced Doty to three years supervised release and he ordered her to pay $25,083 in restitution.
