WOW!
Where's the mug shot?
Is she a sister to the school board member?
How could this much money go missing, and for so long? Aren't the schools audited?
So many questions.

Hard to believe that much money could go missing! I mean the paper said from 20k to 100k. Wow! She must have had a good deal going there while the getting was good. It's a shame that she took that money which should have gone to the school.

Bull shit like this is why the schools have to ask for donations of school supplies for the kids. I hope they put her under the jail, but you watch and se it will be a slap on the wrist. Why?? Because her brother is town councilman, other brother school board member, and doubt you will see any photo and perhaps nothing in the Lebanon Paper because her nephew is part owner of that. Hell, Russell County is full of rogues ripping off the taxpayers beyond belief and as long as the citizens keep being ignorant and letting the crooked ringleaders be in charge it's not going to stop. You have to think that some families apparently have being Rogues in their DNA when you analyze the things going on in the county and who it involves. How could this go on so long before it was picked up on. I'd almost bet it was because of who it was and only happened because it got so bad an actual auditor found it.......I don't know but that's usually how political positions are finally exposed because those in the circle don't want to ruffle any feathers as long as they are getting their share...Thank God for whoever got this looked at. People you can be sure of one thing this is not the only embezzlement going on in Russell County, especially within the taxpayer supported section of it.

She wasn't a very nice person. She always seemed to have a frown and talked down to people that had business at school. Hopefully they have figured out how she did this and change the program!

This has been going on for years. One year all of the yearbook money disappeared, that alone could be as much as $25,000. I would bet the band booster money that disappeared would be twice that. Senior trip money disappeared. The VSP needs to interview graduates from the past 5 years.

This is why school principals need to be transferred to a different school every two years, it's called checks and balances.

When the BHC contacted Dr Hess last week, she stated Stacey is not an employee.

She was able to retire before being charged . That way she didn't loose her retirement benfits . That's the good ol school board members we have all of them allow this . Should have been fired on the spot any one else at anyother job would have. This is only one thing that this school board has try to cover up to protect there buddys.

just goes to show how much our school board cares about these innocent kids that the witch ripped off! Her retirement benefits should be going to pay restitution to these victims!

When you have her brother on school board, better believe she got that retirement before arrest. That's whats wrong with this county, Hope everyone that votes realizes that the whole board needs to go. Vote in new school board members..... next election..

The school board is probably treating it like an illness,she'll probably get a disability check too for being diagnosed a kleptomaniac!
