Fayette County Schools Athletic Director Indicted For Theft & Misconduct

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) - The athletic director of the Fayette County School system is facing charges. Neal Halvorson has been indicted on theft and two counts of official misconduct.

Halvorson is accused of double dipping. For two months, he worked as the athletic director for Fayette County Schools and as the Oakland, Tennessee parks director. Both full time jobs.

According to the indictment, Halvorson used a truck and fuel card owned by the city of Oakland, but also turned in improper mileage expense reports to Fayette County during the same period.

Halvorson refused to comment on the charges as he left the courthouse.

The district attorney says the discrepancies were found during an audit by the state comptroller. Oakland's mayor says the charges are connected to a trip Halverson took to Nashville last year.
