Patch: Times Piece Raised Money for PS29 Embezzler

By Lisa M. Collins

The back story on the embezzlement case of Providence Hogan, who recently pleaded guilty to stealing $82,000 from P.S. 29 in Cobble Hill and agreed to pay back all the money within two years to avoid jail time, is ever interesting. The Carroll Gardens Patch has a story saying that a column in The New York Times, which was sympathetic to Hogan, resulted in members of the community donating money to the Carroll Gardens mom so she could make the payment needed to avoid trial, and jail.
