Ex-Principal Pleads Guilty to School Fund Theft

Posted:

BALTIMORE (AP)- The former principal at a Baltimore high school has pleaded guilty to stealing more than $10,000 from the school's activity fund.

Thirty-7-year-old William L. Howard II entered the plea to felony theft, the Office of the State Prosecutor said Tuesday. Howard, who paid restitution, was sentenced to probation before judgment and 150 hours of community service.

According to a statement of facts, Howard left his post as principal of Copping Academy High School in 2008. Prosecutors say between April and November 2011, Howard made four unauthorized transfers from the school's activity fund to his personal bank accounts.

Prosecutors say Howard used some of the money to pay wedding expenses.
