Ex-Tx Southern pres. billed school for $100,000 bar tab

Former TSU President Priscilla Slade racked up a $100,000 bar tab at Scott Gertner's Skybar and Grille during her tenure and stuck Texas Southern University with the bill, prosecutors said Wednesday.

TSU routinely paid for $100 bottles of wine for Slade and drinks for her friends and staff, despite a prohibition at that time on state monies being spent on alcohol, Assistant District Attorney Donna Goode said.

Slade's former executive assistant, Erica Vallier, said that the rules for purchasing have since changed, but at the time, Slade told her not to worry about the prohibition. She said her boss drank bottles of Far Niente with her friends and staff at expensive bars, such as the Four Seasons bar and the Skybar.

Slade led the historically black university from 1999 to 2005, after being pressed into service from her post as the dean of the business school.

Slade is on trial on charges of misapplication of fiduciary property of more than $200,000, accused of spending school money on personal expenses. If convicted, she faces a punishment ranging from probation to life in prison.

This is distinctive. This is NOT a portion of social administrations. This is a LOAN program particularly for low salary families needing an auto or auto repair, who don't fit the bill for typical mortgages. They have their own particular arrangement of necessities and are NOT accessible in each state.

To get in and out of the air terminal, there are a few open transports accessible. Taxis and transports are the most prominent, despite the fact that there's a train station that could take you very close to the air terminal too. The Eurobus administration can convey you effectively to Venice. check cashing
