The Times has more on Davis

The Washington Times has more on the guilty plea offered by an ex-DCPS principal on charges of stealing more than $9,000 from student funds.
Nae M. Davis, 58, former principal of John Burroughs Elementary School in Northeast, faces six months to two years in prison after pleading guilty to a felony theft charge, prosecutors said.

Miss Davis, who will be sentenced next month in D.C. Superior Court, declined to comment yesterday when reached by phone at her home in the District.


Prosecutors said Miss Davis controlled and made all spending decisions for money held in a bank account earmarked for proceeds of school fundraising events. Students raised money by selling sodas, cakes and doughnuts.

Between 2000 to 2002, Miss Davis spent thousands of dollars from the student activity bank account on personal purchases at local food stores, officials said.

Some of the personal purchases included DVDs; a Palm Pilot personal messaging device; travel clocks; dinners of lobster, shrimp, veal, and sushi; calling cards and a cordless telephone, prosecutors said.
As I said yesterday I hope that the judge sentences her to some time in the big house.

The Post failed mention the fact that Mrs. Davis has repaid in full all the money she took. She had an excellent record as an educator for nearly 30 years, unfortunately she succumbed to a personal weakness and admitted her fault and apologized profussly.
