New Developments In Greene County Schools Embezzlement Case

A school embezzlement investigation continues today, and school officials say the woman at the center of the probe may have stolen much, much more money than they thought.

Forty-three-year-old Angela Potter of Kinston was arrested in September, accused of embezzling nearly $2,700 in checks and cash from Greene county schools.

Now, the school system says Potter might have embezzled tens of thousands of dollars over six years. That's according to the Kinston Free Press, which says the SBI is now investigating.

Potter was a benefits specialist for Greene county schools. Her next court appearance is December 16th.

    I wouldn't go down alone girl. The ones that work with you are definitely judging you right now but are no better. Especially the ones that pretend to be your friend and leave you during this time. Tell what you know and not let them walk around outside while you walk around inside.

    I still can't see how she got the money. In her position any checks she received shoul d be made to Greene County Schools and she could not cash them made to a company. 10s of thousands of dollars would not go thru her hands in cash as benefits person. They need to dig deeper. There must be someone else in it with her that knew how to keep it hidden from the auditors for 6 years...or maybe they need a more thorough audit.

    Everyone steals. The ones that tend to judge just never got caught. I don't agree with what she's done but she's still a nice woman.

      Everyone steals? Are you kidding me? No they don't. Just because you do doesn't mean we all do. Geez.

    "A wonderful person" well a wonderful person doesn't not steal what does not belong to them. I don't see anything wonderful about a thief. She may be a wonderful person as a mom or friend but as an employee, she has hurt a lot of people by her big mistake! Maybe she will end up the "wonderful" person to all her fellow inmates when she serves time and I hope she does!!

      They are not separate issues... If you steal you can not be a wonderful person. I was taught a thief is a dirtbag, period....

    Was she accountable to a supervisor? Most people are held to high standards by somebody. Find that supervisor, then establish responsibilty. Until proven guilty ---innocent. Tough on crime but believe in fairness.

    Prison food may be the correct cure for her. About four and a half years worth should do the trick.
