COLUMBUS, OH (FOX19) -
Ohio auditor Dave Yost has released a second report on Cincinnati College Preparatory Academy (CCPA).
The audit released on Thursday reviewed records from the 2010 fiscal year. During that time, the audit finds that Treasurer Stephanie Millard's salary was set to not exceed $50,700. She invoiced and was paid a total of $59,007. There was no evidence that the board approved the overpayment and no indication that it was for a proper public purpose. A finding for recovery in the amount of $8,307 was issued against Millard.
Superintendent Lisa Hamm used school credit cards to charge items that were not related to school business. Checks were issued to vendors such as the Cincinnati Bengals, Benihana Steak House, Wahoo Zip Lines, Omaha Steaks, and Dixie Stampede. The payments totaled $8,495, and a finding for recovery was issued against Hamm in that amount.
"These two officials saw no boundaries in how they used taxpayer dollars," Auditor Yost said. "With each audit, we find more of the same: total disregard for the trust placed in them."
A separate special audit was initiated on December 22, 2009 after allegations of credit card misuse surfaced. The special audit was released in June 2013 and included nearly $520,000 in findings for recovery related to inappropriate expenditures made by Hamm and Millard.
The Hamilton County Prosecutor obtained indictments against Hamm and Millard on March 6, 2013 on 26 charges of theft in office, unauthorized use of property, tampering with evidence and tampering with records.
The CCPA Board of Directors terminated the employment of Hamm and Millard on March 18, 2013.
