SC education official stole $90K in school money and went on shopping sprees, AG says

A former education official pleaded guilty to scamming a Midlands school district and agreed to pay tens of thousands of dollars in restitution, the South Carolina Attorney General’s Office said.

Some of the stolen money was used on personal shopping sprees for exotic items that had a dubious connection to childhood education, South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson said in a news release.

Vivian “Libby” Campbell DuBose, formerly director of the Child Early Reading Development Program of the Sumter County School District, pleaded guilty Friday to state grand jury charges of accepting rebates and extra compensation, in addition to misconduct in office, Wilson said.

Authorized and Paid for by Wilson for Attorney General.
