Former Yonkers school superintendent serving time at local community center
Former Yonkers School Superintendent Angelo Petrone will be spending his time helping struggling students at a local community center.
A judge sentenced Petrone Monday to 750 hours of community service at the Nepperhan Community Center in Yonkers. Petrone must also evaluate the alternative middle school program at the center. Petrone pleaded guilty to perjury and tampering charges in a hiring scandal last year at the Yonkers Board of Education. Petrone hired an unqualified senior accountant at a salary of $90,000 and lied under oath about how the man got the job.
Petrone is also on probation for the next five years.
