Jeffrey Hubbard, Newport-Mesa Schools Chief, Indicted on 3rd Misappropriation of Funds Count

Fortunately for Newport-Mesa Unified School District chief Jeffrey Hubbard, his school board has stood by him amid charges and embarrassing evidence (love pledges and oral-sex references exchanged with and racy photos of a fellow administrator he allegedly gave secret financial bonuses to) related to his previous gig with Beverly Hills schools. Now, the Los Angeles County grand jury has indicted Hubbard on a third count of illegally giving Beverly Hills district funds, only this time it was supposedly to a second woman who later joined him at Newport-Mesa. Hell, screw trustees and prosecutors, one wonders what Hubbard's explanation will be to the first chick!

As Hubbard has with the two felony counts of misappropriation of public funds related to his relationship with fellow administrator Karen Anne Christiansen, the 54-year-old schools superintendent pleaded not guilty to the new third count surrounding a supposedly secret raise given to Nora Roque when she worked with him in LA County. All the counts relate to actions taken from 2005-2006 in the Beverly Hills Unified School District.

The Daily Pilot reports that Roque joined Newport-Mesa in June 2008 as a coordinator of administrative services at an annual salary of $106,516.32. She's now pulling down $142,175.06 yearly as the district's director of classified personnel. She is not accused of wrongdoing in the LA County case.

Hubbard returned to Newport-Mesa this school year after taking a five-month leave of office that followed the filing of the original indictments, which included charges against Christiansen.

As LA County District Attorney Steve Cooley's office has investigated the allegations and forwarded results to the grand jury, sexed-up details have come out about the relationship between Hubbard and Christiansen, who is alleged to have received about $20,000 and a $350 monthly car allowance without the Beverly Hills school board's approval:


Huge developments were revealed in January:

  • Hubbard denied having an affair with Christiansen and claimed the Beverly Hills school board had approved her $20,000 stipend;

  • Emails emerged showing Hubbard's current Newport-Mesa employers on the school board were standing behind him, believing he is innocent;

  • LA County Superior Court Judge Kathryn Solorzano ruled there was enough evidence of "backroom dealing" in the indictments that Hubbard and Christiansen must stand trial;

  • Solorzano specifically cited swimsuit photos of Christiansen that she sent to a Beverly Hills district attorney whose firm later renegotiated her contract with the school system:

Trial is tentatively set to begin Nov. 10. Hubbard faces up to seven years in state prison if convicted.

What changes are expected to take place in NMUSD School System?

People should do their job and not look the other way when Unlawful Actions take place.

Stop Bullying and Intimidation Practices from Top School Officials.

Outside Authorities should step in when Superintendents, Board Members, President Positions, Principals, Teachers and others who break School Policies, Rights of kids/families and any Unlawful Practices.

RECALL and ask School Officials to step down positions that are endangering children and other People.

News Alert: Why did the NMUSD under Jeffrey Hubbard not download COMPLETE Board Meeting on 12-13-11. One of the Concerned Communit Members brought up some good points.

There were 2 Parents that brought many things to the Superintendent Jefferey Hubbard, Board Members and People in Audience including a Reporter with the Pilot. Additionally there was a EXTREMELY DEDICATED TEACHER very devoted to students and concerned about recent spending on business trips with our Taxes being not appropriately.

The Community is DEMANDING what excuses next OUR DISTRICT is coming up with about WHY were these 3 people Edited out of meeting on 12-13-11. Jeffrey Hubbard was going to begin his TRIAL yet again in LA. And it was pretty obvious they had a lot to hide and NOT GET OUT TO THE PUBLIC!

Kimberly X, concerned parent about HER CHILDS SAFETY, Good Teachers and others are the TOP CONCERN about THE PATTERN OF NOT PROTECTING OUR COMMUNITIES IN THEIR DISTRICT.

Additionally this PARENT notified district prior to inquire what happen to the complete BOARD MEETING, they acted originally like they were not aware of any Problem. Several days later Kimberly called again and asked what happen and was told Indeed there was a computer problem.

Parent finally obtained copy this past Thursday, but wondered why the Complete version was not downloaded still to OUR COMMUNITY. Seems PRETTY SUSPICIOUS TO EVERYONE IN DISTRICT AROUND COUNTRY.

Again, the BIG QUESTION IS WHY GOVERNMENT WORKERS ARE WITHHOLDING UNLAWFUL "KNOWN INFORMATION" to hurt a family and other!

Most people do not realize after 6 months of denying a CLAIM to get ANY ANSWERS OR ACCOUNTABILITY YOU ARE FORCED TO FILE IN COURT. If you do NOT DO ANYTHING, THE GOVERNMENT WORKERS ARE OFF THE HOOK READY TO MOVE TO THEIR NEXT VICTIMS and HURT OTHER CHILDREN, FAMILIES and GOOD TEACHERS AND STAFF in the Community.

Family is concerned about the other children and People left behind and will be working with Government Officials, District Attorney Office and Anyone else that might be afraid of Retaliation by coming forward! Family is setting the example that NO CHILDREN or PEOPLE WILL BE LEFT BEHIND AND PROTECTED UNDER OUR LAWS AND CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS....
