ROYAL OAK, Mich. (WXYZ) - A former Royal Oak High School principal is in court, accused of stealing money from student activity funds.
Michael Greening's preliminary examination included testimony from several school club sponsors as well as Royal Oak High School's athletic director.
The school’s athletic director, Brian Gordon, regularly turned over money from the athletic booster's account to the principal's secretary.
On Monday, Gordon testified he took issue with Greening when he got back paperwork that was incorrect.
When confronted over the discrepancy, Gordon testified that Greening told him he would make it right. But Gordon told the court Greening never did.
The hearing will continue on August 13.
Greening resigned from the district effective June 30.
He's facing two counts of felony embezzlement of $1,000 or more but less than $20,000.
If convicted, Greening could spend up to five years in prison for each count.
