Derlyn Glover, who avoided prison after her 2010 conviction for fraud in the misuse of $300,000 in state McKay Scholarship funds, has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for violating her probation.
Glover, 47, got her new sentence last week. In 2004, she ran the Academy of Dreams school. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement found that she was using someone else's name to participate in the McKay Scholarship Program.
Glover had been barred from the scholarship program after the FDLE discovered she had previously obtained funds for the Sago Palm Educational Academy Inc.
"The investigation revealed that Glover had criminal convictions, which made her ineligible," the FDLE reported. Investigators said she used scholarship money for her personal use.
