The woman who admitted stealing more than one-million dollars from the Clinton School District has been sentenced to 64 months in prison.
Denisa Babcock had pled guilty in U.S. District Court earlier this year to charges related to embezzling $1.2-million from the district while she worked in the finance office from November 2005 to December 2009 when her job was eliminated in budget cuts.
Babcock is being allowed to self-report to prison by January 24th. She had to forfeit money, real property and personal property — including a 2007 Cadillac Escalade, 2006 Hummer, a boat and a home — as part of her plea agreement.
Those items were purchased with money embezzled from the school district, records state. Court records show in addition to the cars and boat, Babcock bought luxury clothes, furniture and vacations with stolen school money.
