Philly principal sentenced for school skim

Nov. 4, 2006 at 1:50 PM   |   Comments

PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 4 (UPI) -- A former Philadelphia principal was sentenced to prison for embezzling more than $200,000 from his charter school.

Curtis Andrews was given 33 months in federal prison Friday following his conviction on six counts of wire fraud and must also pay the money back.

According to the Philadelphia Daily News, Andrews, 58, padded the school's enrollment figures by failing to report student transfers or dropouts, and then skimming the extra funding for himself or increasing the paychecks of some of his staff.

Andrews abruptly closed the Center for Economics and Law Charter School when he learned the Philadelphia School District was investigating.
