Audit: No evidence of fraud at Patrick Henry

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - An audit by Richmond Public Schools finds no evidence of fraud at the new charter school.

Virginia State Police is currently investigating allegations of embezzlement at the Patrick Henry School of Science and Arts.

The internal audit does, however, find plenty of mismanagement of funds collected for student meals and student activities.

The auditor says the weakness in the accounting increases the risk for fraud and loss.

School board members are reviewing the report.
