LOS ANGELES Basil Kimbrew, a former Compton Unified School District board member convicted of falsifying his address to run for office has been charged with misappropriation of public funds, the District Attorneys Office announced today.
Shortly after resigning from the board in December 2002, the 51-year-old Kimbrew allegedly charged nearly $2,000 to his school credit card for a personal party, said Deputy District Attorney Max Huntsman with the Public Integrity Division. In November 2002, Kimbrew, who was living in Carson at the time he ran for the Compton school board, pleaded no contest to one felony count of false declaration of candidacy.
Kimbrew, who is on probation in the earlier case, is charged in case No. GA059162 with three counts of misappropriation of public funds and one count of neglect of public funds, all felonies. He is scheduled to surrender Tuesday, Oct. 26, and be arraigned in Glendale Superior Court.
If convicted, he faces up to four years in prison.
