Previously, we reported on accusations that David O’Bryant stole from a local youth football program.
He pleaded guilty to larceny by conversion. The court sentenced O’Bryant to a month in jail, probation and restitution. He’ll need to pay back $3,726 to the football club.
The fascinating question in this case is why. O’Bryant was a superintendent. I don’t know exactly what they make, but public school superintendents put up with a lot of crap, and they’re typically well paid for it. What made you think you needed to steal another $3,726 from a football program? Did it make a difference relative to what you were paid for being a superintendent? What did you spend the money on? Maybe a criminologist could unpack all of that. For now, Farwell is looking for a new superintendent.
