Ex-Beverly Hills schools chief guilty of misappropriating funds
The former superintendent of schools in Beverly Hills was convicted Monday on two felony counts of missapproriation of public funds.
Jeffrey Hubbard, currently superintendent of the school district that serves Newport Beach and Costa Mesa, was acquitted on a third count by a Superior Court jury in Los Angeles.
The counts on which Hubbard was convicted stemmed from allegations that, as Beverly Hills schools chief, he awarded a bonus to a subordinate and increased her car allowance without the school board's permission.
He was found not guilty of approving a pay raise for another employee without approval.
Hubbard, 54, faces up to four years in prison and the loss of his education credentials.
