The job of a Bronx principal may be in danger after he was found to be giving a contract to an after-school program for a business he was a part of, officials told a New York Criminal Lawyer.
The principal was relieved of his duties at Community School 50 in the Bronx after a Special Commissioner of Investigations determined that the principal had helped to rig the bids, a New York Criminal Lawyer has learned.
The $12,700 contract was given, by the principal, to an after-school program where the kids wrote, edited, and published a magazine for a company whose trademark the principal jointly owns, the commissioner told a New York Criminal Lawyer.
An Education Department spokeswoman said the company would like to fire the principal, due to theft of services. The principals union is representing the principal in disciplinary hearings. Their spokeswoman declined to comment upon the case to a New York Criminal Lawyer. The issue was also brought before the district attorney’s office and a response is awaited from them, as well.
A criminal charge, no matter what it is, is nothing to ignore. It can’t be put aside or given anything less than the utmost attention. A New York Criminal Attorney can give your case the attention it needs, when you or a loved one are accused of criminal activity of any sort. You will need good representation and there is no one better to provide that than a New York Criminal Attorney.
