Follow-up: School Employee Charged
A technology manager for District of Columbia schools who stuck schoolchildren with his tabs for thousands of dollars worth of lavish restaurant meals, nightclub jaunts and visits to a strip club has been charged with filing fraudulent expense reimbursement requests. Emerson Crawley was the subject of an article last month in The Post's ongoing investigation of the D.C. school system, which documented that school employees routinely misuse or steal student activity money and are rarely held accountable.
The D.C. Office of the Attorney General charged Crawley with 17 misdemeanor counts of false representations for claiming in 2004 and 2005 that personal meals, drinks and adult entertainment expenses were for school-related training and meetings. Crawley is an employee of Afterschool for All, a program that provides afternoon instruction and supervision to impoverished children in more than 80 public schools. He said in an interview that he is being unfairly singled out for practices that were routine in his program and that were condoned by previous supervisors.
