PLYMOUTH, Conn. (AP) — Sentencing for a former Connecticut schools superintendent who pleaded guilty to misusing a district credit card has been postponed because of a scheduling conflict.
The Republican-American reports that 65-year-old Eleanor Cruz was supposed to be sentenced Wednesday, but a scheduling conflict with the judge moved the date to Dec. 21.
Cruz, of Essex, is the former superintendent for Hebron and Plymouth schools.
While chief of Hebron schools, prosecutors say she used a school credit card at high-end restaurants and online retailers, as well as to buy groceries, gasoline and gardening supplies.
She pleaded guilty to larceny in September.
The prosecution is seeking a three-year sentence suspended after one year. The defense will argue for a suspended sentence.
