A Williams County grand jury met Wednesday and returned indictments against six people.
Among those indicted was the former principal at Lincoln Elementary in Bryan.
Tamara… or “Tammy” Darrow has been indicted on a felony theft charge. Darrow is accused of stealing grant funds from the school. The indictment alleges that Darrow, while she was employed as a principal with the Bryan City School District, misappropriated certain grant funds which she was in charge of, for personal use.
Darrow was only the pricipal for a very short period of time too. Her term as principal began on Aug. 1. She was placed on leave beginning Aug. 26, following the initiation of an investigation by the Bryan City School district into the missing funds.
Darrow turned in her letter of resignation on October 9th, in which she said that she was leaving due to what she termed “personal reasons”.
The indictment handed down by the grand jury, alleges that Darrow committed the crime between April 1 and Oct. 9 of this year. No specific details, including exactly how much money Darrow is alleged to have misappropriated, were released, because officials say both the investigation and the adding up of the total amount missing are still both ongoing. The indictment does however, pin the amount as being between $1,000 and $7,500.
If convicted on the charge, which is a felony, Darrow could spend up to a year in prison.
