Description

A KWCH-TV investigation reveals that a local superintendent embezzled thousands of dollars, paying for personal expenses with the school district credit card. While teachers suffered on a tight budget, Dr. Lynn Stevens spent taxpayers' money on expensive dinners, electronics, clothes and perfumes. This went on for years until a high-school student, running for the school board, looked into his spending and tipped the TV station about the embezzlement. Stevens pleaded guilty and was sentenced to community service and restitution payments.
