Former superintendent accused of committing white collar crimes

A former school superintendent in Minnesota stepped down from his post after facing accusations of making personal purchases with district money. However, he now faces brand-new charges of theft, unauthorized access to a computer and computer damage. However, like him, anyone facing white collar crimes in Minnesota is always presumed innocent unless his or her guilt can be proved in a court of law.

The former superintendent resigned back in June of last year when he was being investigated for utilizing district funds for personal use. However, he received a severance package of $50,000 from the school district first. Authorities said they eventually discovered that he had spent thousands of the district's dollars on personal items.

Following their investigation, police arrested the man and charged him with 21 felonies. These include receiving property that had been stolen, committing theft via swindle and embezzling public funds. A $1,000 bail was set for the man, who was expected to return to court in early July.

Individuals accused of white collar crimes in Minnesota may understandably worry about how their criminal charges will impact their reputations and their futures. Fortunately, it is within their rights to fight the charges at trial, where prosecutors have to prove the charges beyond a reasonable doubt before any conviction can take place. This high standard is in place in an effort to protect innocent people from being convicted of crimes they did not commit. An attorney will scrutinize and seek to poke holes in the prosecution's evidence in an effort to achieve the most personally favorable outcome for the defendant.
