Wisconsin high school principal charged with embezzlement

Most educators and coaches in Wisconsin are committed to continuing their educations and seeking methods that will help them improve their practices. To do so, they will often attend conferences and clinics that may require them to travel to other parts of the state or country. Unfortunately, one educator's claim of attending such clinics has now left him facing accusations of embezzlement.

Reports indicate that the 37-year-old man, who serves as the assistant high school principal and head wrestling coach of a Wisconsin high school, reportedly informed district officials of his intention of traveling to another state with other coaches to attend a clinic in Sept. 2011. He is said to have also expressed a desire to treat the coaches to a football game. That request was allegedly denied.

Law enforcement officials claim that despite the claimed denial, the man used district funds to purchase college football tickets in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2018. In fact, the district believes that it paid travel and other associated costs for clinics that the man never intended. He is accused of stealing over $13,900 from the district.

As a result of the accusations, the man is accused of eight counts of theft by swindle and eight counts of embezzlement. However, it is unclear what led district officials to believe that he was not attending clinics or what evidence supports the claims. To ensure that the Wisconsin man fully understands the charges against him, he will likely want an experienced professional to help him examine the case, ensuring that he is capable of making the decisions that will impact his future with all the information available to him.
