School custodian found to have misused funds.
The Department of Education charged a custodial engineer with the misuse of funds. ALJ Kevin F. Casey found that the custodian failed to repay more than $43,000 he owed to the Department in excess funds, that he wrote a check to the Department for $43,620, knowing that there were insufficient funds in his account to cover the check, and that he overpaid himself by $14,000. ALJ Casey recommended termination of respondent’s employment. Dep’t of Education v. Magassa (in PDF), OATH Index No. 494/13 (Apr. 5, 2013), adopted, Chancellor’s Determination (Apr. 23, 2013).
