DeSoto Woman Sentenced for Embezzling $1.6 Million from Grandview School District
St. Louis, MO – Angela Huskey, was sentenced to 63 months in prison on mail fraud charges in connection with her embezzlement of approximately $1.6 million from the Grandview R-2 School District. She was ordered to pay $1,813,900.63 in restitution.
According to court documents, Huskey worked for Grandview for more than 20 years, being elevated to the position of business manager in 2009. In court today, Huskey admitted that she embezzled no less than $1.6 million from the school district during that time, falsifying the school district’s records to conceal her crimes. In some cases, Huskey admitted, she concealed her embezzlement by inflating the reported wages for other employees of the school district, causing those individuals to pay excess taxes to the Internal Revenue Service. As a result, those individuals paid an additional $13,368.28 in income taxes they did not in fact owe.
Huskey, 51, DeSoto, MO, pled guilty in June to one felony count of mail fraud and appeared today for sentencing before United States District Judge Rodney W. Sippel.
The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant United States Attorney Gwen Carroll is handling the case for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
