Former President of the Elizabeth School Board Marie Munn convicted in school lunch scandal

ELIZABETH - The former president of the Elizabeth School Board was convicted yesterday of stealing from the district's free lunch program.

The Union County Prosecutor says Marie Munn stole from the program by filing false applications for her own children. As a result, her kids received over $2,500 in benefits they were not entitled to.

The federally funded program provides free and reduced-cost lunches for students who are not able to afford them.

Munn is scheduled to be sentenced in May.  She could face up to five years in prison and a $15,000 fine.
