The embattled former principal of Barbara Jordan Elementary, Jan Brown, is set to plea in connection with an investigation into the school’s funds.
Brown was charged with false report to a peace officer, a class B misdemeanor, after Texas Ranger Brian Burney questioned her about the creation of invoices and purpose for creating the invoices, according to an affidavit.
She was not charged in connection with the monetary discrepancies. Defense attorney Robert White declined to comment on the case and prosecutor Allison Burton with the County Attorney’s Office was not available for comment.
The Texas Rangers began investigating the school’s activity fund Dec. 3. Brown submitted her retirement Feb. 14 effective April 30 citing a family member’s illness after being placed on paid administrative leave Jan. 14.
