New Castle charter school administrator invovled in $161K embezzlement scandal

As a part of an ongoing investigation that started last year, a Family Foundations Academy administrator pleaded guilty to the embezzlement of over $161,000 from the charter school. “Sean Moore, 43, entered the plea to three counts of federal program theft before U.S. District Judge Richard G. Andrews,” the News Journal reported. “He is facing a maximum of 30 years in prison when he is sentenced in March.”
Last year, WDEL reported that the investigation had begun at the New Castle school:

The school made haste to take appropriate action once the news was released, according to the News Journal report.
WDEL has an itemized breakdown of the questionable purchases made by Moore, some of which included Mercedes Benz payments, a $3,000 laptop and tickets to WWE and Alicia Keys events.
While charter schools in Delaware have had their troubles this year, namely with the Delaware STEM Academy’s misfortunes, they’ve also had successes in the past.
