Former La Vernia Junior High School Principal Maria Elena Wildenstein will serve seven years probation as part of a deferred adjudication agreement approved Nov. 12 by Judge Donna Rayes of the 81st Judicial District.
In addition to various court fees, 49-year-old Wildenstein also was ordered to repay $31,591.97 in restitution to the La Vernia Independent School District.
Wildenstein pled “no contest” to one count of misapplication by a fiduciary totaling more than $20,000 but less than $100,000. This was after 23 separate checks from the school’s junior high activity fund were misapplied.
