Former DCPS official gets 6 months in the big house

A former director of internal audit Eugene Smith was sentenced to 6 months in jail for embezzling more than $46,000 from the school system.
Eugene Smith was sentenced in federal court on Wednesday on charges he stole the money several months after he stopped working for the school system as director of internal audit in 2002.

Prosecutors say although Smith was no longer working for the city, he was able to use a debit card he had improperly obtained to access an account that he put under his personal control.
