Christopher Fee Pled Guilty to Charges

In Lee County, a former School Board employee has pled guilty to charges of Improper Personal Use of Cellphones totalling almost $2,000, however he won't have to serve any jail time for it.
Christopher Fee who was formerly employed in the IT department, pled guilty and he was the one responsible for the oversight of cellphones that were used by school board employees. Fee admitted to using two of the cellphones that were school board property for personal use, or for an unauthorized person. Usage of these cellphones spanned the months of December 2014 until June 2016 and caused the Lee County School Board to render payment of the bills of roughly $1,920.
Commonwealth Attorney H. Fuller Cridlin stated that Christopher Fee will not be serving any jail time after pleading guilty to the charge. Further stating, "The defendant impermissible and illegal exploited his position within the Lee County School Board to obtain cellular phones for his own personal use at the expense of taxpayers. His felony conviction today holds him accountable for his actions and sends a message to others that this type of corruption will not be tolerated."
Cridlin went on to add that "Today's guilty plea is the result of a lot of hard work by the Virginia State Police and the Virginia Attorney General's Office. I particularly appreciate the work of VSP Special Agent Kelly Harvel who directed the investigation, and Assistant Attorney General and Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Suzanne Kerney-Quillen who assisted my office in the prosecution of this complex case."
