A former Washington, Iowa principal accused of stealing from his school district has reached a plea agreement with authorities.
Monte Davis has pleaded guilty to one count of theft and to four counts of felonious misconduct in office. A judge this morning sentenced Davis to three years probation and a $750 fine on each of the five counts, Davis was ordered to pay restitution for more than $15,000 plus other court costs. This means Davis will not go to prison, unless he violates probation and a judge adjusts his sentence.
Davis was accused of falsifying reimbursement requests for school supplies while he was junior high principal in Washington, Iowa. A special state audit found more than $20,000 in either improper and questionable disbursements or undeposited funds while Davis was principal of the school.
