Reporters caught an elementary school superintendent stealing from one of the poorest school districts in Arizona. His actions were devastating to the community and the students that put their faith in him. Reporters discovered he took cash advances on the school district credit card and gambled at casinos. He also connected the school's utilities to the trailer he lived in behind the school along with a satellite dish. He was accused of sexual harassment by an employee where he once was a principal. And the school district hired him knowing he spent almost two years in a federal prison for drug smuggling.
