SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - The former Random Lake School District employee charged with stealing hundreds of computer tablets has been bound over for trial. 33-year-old Mark Ustby of Milwaukee waived his right to a preliminary hearing in Sheboygan County Court Wednesday.
Ustby faces two theft charges for taking around 500 tablets from the district, plus several dozen donated by a Random Lake business, worth around 180 thousand dollars. Ustby resigned his position late last month, one day before the tablets were discovered missing.
When law enforcement asked him about the missing items, he said he sold them on Craigslist so that he could give the money to several people he felt were worse off than he was.
