Attorney General charges Scranton School Board official for using public money for personal use

News

SCRANTON, LACKAWANNA COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) – Attorney General Josh Shapiro has announced felony charges against the former Deputy Superintendent of Finance for the Scranton School District for having the district pay for work done on his personal vehicles. The charges are part of a long-running investigation into corruption in the Scranton School District.

In September, Shapiro announced first-degree felony charges against Daniel Sansky, a former Scranton School District fleet manager, for overbilling and double-billing for work performed on district vehicles by his Auto Body Shop, Danny’s Auto Service. 

On Friday, Gregg Sunday, 58, was charged with conflict of interest after an investigation revealed the SSD was paying for automobile work on his personal vehicles. The investigation found that Sansky claimed to provide“free work” on Sunday’s vehicles, but then billed the school district for this work. The billing was then approved by Sunday in his capacity as Deputy Superintendent of Finance.

An investigation by the Office of Attorney General and Pennsylvania State Police revealed that Sunday approved a total of $8,166.25 from 2014 to 2016 for repairs of SSD vehicles that were actually made on vehicles belonging to Sunday and his family members.

Sunday surrendered for arrest this morning to members of the Pennsylvania State Police and agents from the Office of Attorney General.
