Middle school teacher accused of embezzlement
KENT COUNTY, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) – A West Michigan middle school teacher is on administrative leave tonight, accused of embezzling from the Caledonia School District.
Kent County prosecutors have charged 38-year-old Anthony Marsiglia with embezzlement of 20,000 to 50,000 dollars.
Deputies say the Duncan Lake Middle School teacher was embezzling technology products from the district.
Investigators say Marsiglia was also arrested in 2008 for cocaine possession.
Caledonia schools sent a letter home to parents on Thursday that read in part;
“Incidents of this nature are unfortunate and very concerning, particularly for a public school system. Fortunately, this alleged crime did not involve any students. As leaders of Caledonia schools, we are committed to ensuring that we hold our staff members accountable to the highest standards of behavior.”
