Two top officials in the Beaumont Independent School District have been sentenced to prison for stealing more than $4 million from the district. A U.S. district judge sentenced former finance director Devin Wayne McCraney to five years and eight months in federal prison after McCraney pleaded guilty in April to defrauding programs that receive federal funds. Former comptroller Sharika Baksh Allison was jailed for three years and 10 months following a guilty plea to conspiracy to defraud the same programs. The pair also have been ordered to pay more than $4 million in restitution. In April, the Texas Education Agency announced it was taking over the district.
