A few months back we learned that the Pine Bluff School District had been defrauded of some $803,000 by a crafty employee who had developed an elaborate scheme to embezzle funds by writing checks to a business account she’d established.
But don’t worry. The district superintendent, Frank Anthony, is “embarrassed” by the malfeasance that occurred under his watch, he told a meeting of the Legislative Joint Auditing Committee today. Whew. For a minute there, I was afraid there would be no repercussions.
