Former New York School Administrator Sentenced For Embezzling $562K

Donald Guy Fuller, 50, of Hamburg, New York, was sentenced yesterday to 33 months in prison for embezzling some $562,000 from the prestigious Canisius High School in Buffalo where he had served as facilities director. According to prosecutors, over a span of thirteen years, Fuller fraudulently billed the school 141 times under the name of a fake company, D.J. Mechanical & Supply, for work that was never done, keeping to proceeds for himself. Fuller was also ordered to pay the IRS $150,000 in back taxes on the ill-gotten gains and make full restitution to the school. At his sentencing hearing, Fuller claimed that he stole the money to help support his disabled son.
