CASE UPDATE: Former Scranton School District Fleet Manager Sentenced for Theft

September 6, 2019 | Topic: Criminal

HARRISBURG — Attorney General Josh Shapiro today announced that Daniel Sansky, the former Fleet Manager for the Scranton School Distict (SSD), was sentenced to 6-23 months in prison plus an additional 5 years of probation and ordered to pay $31,186 in restitution.

Sansky was arrested and charged in September 2018 after a statewide grand jury investigation found that he routinely overbilled the SSD for incomplete repair work on SSD vechicles and performed free auto work for certain SSD employees and their family members. He pleaded guilty to a felony theft charge in June 2019.

“Today, Daniel Sansky was held accountable for betraying the public’s trust and stealing thousands of dollars from the Scranton School District that should have gone towards the students,” said Attorney General Josh Shapiro. “My Office will continue to investigate public corruption and prosecute anyone who abuses their position of authority, no matter who they are.”

The defendant was immediately taken into custody. Senior Deputy Attorney General Erik Olsen prosecuted the case. The investigation into overbilling and corruption within the SSD is ongoing.
