Former Baltimore Principal Pleads Guilty To School Fund Theft

BALTIMORE (AP) — A former principal of a public charter high school in Baltimore has pleaded guilty to stealing more than $10,000 from the school’s fund for student activities.

Prosecutors say William Howard II, 37, pleaded guilty in Baltimore City Circuit Court. A judge placed him on four years of probation, and Howard has returned $10,300 to Coppin Academy. Howard must also perform 150 hours of community service.

Prosecutors say that in 2011 Howard made four unauthorized transfers from the school’s student activity bank account into his own bank account. They say he used the money for personal purposes including wedding expenses.

Howard had left Coppin Academy in 2008 and was employed as assistant vice president for academic services at Saint Mary’s College of Maryland.
