A former Liberty school superintendent was arrested and booked into a Florida jail late last night on a Missouri warrant for two counts of stealing relating to his tenure with the district.
William Scott Taveau, 60, of Hudson, Fla., was arrested by the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office and booked into the Land O’ Lakes, Fla, detention center about 9:45 p.m. Wednesday, according to booking information on the sheriff’s website.
He was being held on Missouri charges of two counts stealing, according to the booking information. The arrest warrant is regarding an indictment handed down in Clay County.
A Clay County grand jury indicted Taveau Tuesday on one count each of stealing by deceit and attempted stealing by deceit. Both charges are felonies.
In the count referring to stealing by deceit, the indictment alleges that Taveau improperly received benefit payments from the Missouri Public School Retirement System while serving as superintendent.
