Ex-school treasurer gets probation for $25K theft

HIGHLAND PARK, Mich. (AP) - A former Highland Park charter school treasurer has been sentenced to five years' probation and ordered to make restitution for embezzling $25,000 and using it to buy a house Detroit.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette says 37-year-old Shantell Bell was sentenced Wednesday after her conviction in Wayne County Circuit Court. A jury convicted her Aug. 5.

Highland Park is an impoverished city surrounded by Detroit.

Authorities say a $25,000 check request was made in 2009 for textbooks at George Washington Carver Academy. The money later was paid to an Ohio title company. Bell's ex-boyfriend reported it to the school, which contacted state police.

Judge Carol Youngblood also ordered Bell to sell the rental property and pay the proceeds to the Carver Academy.
