The former superintendent of a school district just southwest of Snyder will spend some time in Jail.

Dr. Larry Gene Devitt, the former superintendent of Ira Independent School District, has been sentenced to 14 months in federal prison and ordered to pay more than $25,000 in restitution after pleading guilty to one count of mail fraud last May.

The 64-year-old Devitt embezzled more than $13,000 in federal funds by misusing IISD vendors, and the district’s credit cards to purchase property for his personal benefit.

During that time, Devitt represented that he was using them for work-related expenses, such as supplies, travel, staff development, and training. Staff was directed to pay the vendors and credit cards from the IISD accounts.

Devitt will surrender his Texas Educator Certificate, and will not be able to apply for another certificate.
