San Francisco city college chancellor pleads guilty to misuse of public funds

The former chancellor of City College of San Francisco will not receive prison time after pleading guilty to misusing public funds.

Philip Day, committed the felony of diverting nearly $100,000 in college funds to campaign for community college bond ballot measures. Day acted as the chancellor of city college of San Francisco from 1998 to 2008.

The San Francisco Chronicle says he pleaded guilty to three felony counts and agreed to pay $30,000 in fines. He will also pay restitution to the college in an amount to be determined by the court.

Defense lawyer Cris Arguedas says Day won't serve any jail time. The felonies will be reduced to misdemeanors when the fines and restitution are paid.
