GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) _ A former teacher has been accused of stealing nearly $208,000 from the show choir he directed at a Grand Island high school.
David Sackschewsky had been a teacher at Northwest High School until he resigned earlier this month after being on medical leave since a vehicular accident last fall.
The 46-year-old’s arrest follows an investigation into suspicious transactions on the bank account of the 14 Karat Gold Show Choir at Northwest. He was the choir’s director at the time.
The charges are four counts of forgery and one of theft.
His attorney, Mark Porto, says he thinks Sackschewsky is not guilty, and “we’re prepared to have this out in court.”
