Stealing From Children

OCTOBER 11, 2005

The former chief of the Roslyn, New York school district has plead guilty to grand larceny charges, admitting that he took millions of taxpayer money to finance a lavish lifestyle that included European vacations on the supersonic Concorde. He also used the money for mortgage payments for homes in Florida, the Hamptons and Pennsylvania.

Frank Tassone is scheduled to be sentenced in late November and his prison time could range anywhere from 4 to 12 years. New York’s state comptroller called Tassone’s actions “the most extraordinary theft from a school district in American history.”

The schools in Roslyn, which is about 20 miles from Manhattan, are among the best in the state. Homes in the district frequently sell for millions of dollars and SAT scores are among the best in the nation.
