WE'RE DIGGING DEEPER INTO HOW THE DISTRICT COMPLETELY AVOIDED LAW ENFORCEMENT --

AND THE COUPLE STILL HAVE JOBS PAID WITH YOUR TAX PAYER MONEY. Return to index of stories...


ESTERO COACHES-PKG


LEE COUNTY SCHOOLS MADE A DEAL WITH MR AND MRS HANLON— THEY WOULDN'T CALL THE COPS IF THE COUPLE GIVES BACK THE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS THEY STOLE.

12:04 this only becomes a criminal case if somebody actually reports it 09

ATTORNEY LANCE DUNFORD SAYS WHILE THE SCHOOL DISTRICT DOESNT HAVE TO REPORT THE THEFT—HES SHOCKED THAT THEY HAVENT.

09:34 I've had many teachers who come to us and have been of crimes that are for lack of a better word much more minor than this 42 and they lose their jobs 44

THE HANLONS USED A SQUARE DEVICE TO WIRE OVER TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS INTO A FAMILY BANK ACCOUNT DURING A SCHOOL FUNDRAISER.

04:09 I think because it's the fundraising money that makes it even worse 13

DUNFORD SAYS THEY MIGHT HAVE MADE EXCUSES FOR HOW THEY SPENT THAT TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS—

06:20 if it's kind of a gray area about where these items were being purchased and what purpose they were actually being used for then maybe that's where they haven't met that threshold 28

BUT DOCUMENTS CLEARLY SHOW THE HANLONS WENT ON A NAPLES SHOPPING SPREE JUST AFTER THE FUNDRAISER.

02:42 how are you gonna teach my kids oh yes just steal money just steal something it's okay come on 48

PARENTS SAY THE HANLONS SHOULD BE HELD TO A HIGHER STANDARD—BUT DUNFORD SAYS THE LAW ISNT CLEAR.

07:49 is there a legal duty for them to hold that money to a higher standard? I don't know that there's a written on the books legal standard that the school board has 58 Return to index of stories...
