Woman Charged in BCSD Theft Arrested After Domestic Incident

Brandi Wickliffe, one of three people charged in connection with the 2012 theft of about $130,000 from a Brewster Central School District child care program, was arrested after a recent domestic incident. 

State troopers from the Wappinger barracks arrested Wickliffe, 38, Wednesday on a misdemeanor charge of second-degree menacing. A Newburgh resident, she is accused of "pointing a knife and threatening her victim during a domestic incident at a private residence in the Town of Wappinger," police said in a statement Tuesday.

Following arraignment, Wickliffe was released. She was due back in court the following day.

At the time of her arrest in January 2012, Wickliffe was charged with second-degree grand larceny, a felony. She was accused of stealing more than $115,000 in revenue from a before and after-school child care program that she ran with her parents, Eric and Debra Thompson.

The Thompsons, both former Brewster teachers, were accused of stealing about $15,000 in "overpaid salary by collecting the money for services that were not actually performed," officials said. Officials charged each with third-degree grand larceny, a felony.

Wickliffe was sentenced to probation and restitution.

I am curious why people are "liking" this particular article. Is it because Wikliffe was arrested again? Or the article was well written? Curious Will explain why in anyone responds.

My guess would be that it is because she was arrested again. And also, that they probably either suffered or knew somebody that suffered abuse at the hands of her father (Mr. Thompson) at Garden Street School back in the 1970's.
