A former administrative manager at Vanderbilt University Law School was sentenced to 22 years in prison on Tuesday after pleading guilty in the theft of more than $535,000 from his one-time employer.
Jason Hunt, 34, was accused of using a university credit card for personal purchases and writing fraudulent checks, report the National Law Journal and the Nashville City Paper. Hunt also pleaded guilty to statutory rape for a sexual relationship with two 17-year-old boys who cashed some of the checks.
Hunt’s domestic partner was sentenced to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to theft and statutory rape.
After being placed on administrative leave, Hunt had opened a nightclub in Mexico with his partner. He returned to the United States after the nightclub failed, the NLJ says.
