Update: Former Portola Valley superintendent faces jail time, even with restitution

Original post made on Aug 2, 2012

Former Portola Valley schools superintendent Tim Hanretty is still likely to serve jail time even if he avoids state prison after pleading no contest to six felony charges -- including embezzlement of $101,000 from the Portola Valley district -- stemming from his work at that district and the Woodside School District.

he should also have to pay the cost of extra audits, hiring of extra staff to unwind his messes, all legal fees, penalties.. And at least a portion of what he spent without getting appropriate approvals (whether or not it was to his personal benefit). And do prison time for what has happened in two communities.

Would be nice if we can know where the $s come from also (his $s or wealthy anonymous donors who still back him for his support of their projects and their kids)

@ don't forget:

I agree. Also, “Tim Hanretty Damage Control Fund” contributions should be solicited from his numerous fan boys and girls who posted here using insults, condescending remarks, etc, to stifle or bark down anyone who dared try to discuss the situation, or post opinions that the supporters didn't want publicly shared. There even were scathingly critical comments aimed toward the Almanac writer who dared to cover the story, in the first place. Either this con made a lot of “friends,” or he has a lot of relatives...
