College employee receives jail time
November 3, 2009
Former College of William and Mary employee Jason Culiner will serve a two-month jail sentence for stealing nine computers from the College and attempting to sell them on Craigslist.com.
According to court documents, Director of Systems and Support of IT Chris Ward reported the theft of nine Dell Latitude D630 laptop computers Feb. 4, 2009 after a regular laptop inventory.
Each laptop was valued at $1,300. IT records indicated that Culiner was the last person to have the computers in his personal possession.
Culiner pled guilty to grand larceny in the Williamsburg-James City County Circuit Court in September and was sentenced to 10 years in prison Monday morning. All but two months of his sentence were suspended, but he will spend the next 13 years on probation.
In an interview with the Daily Press, Williamsburg-James City County Prosecutor Cathy Black said Culiner was trying to sell the stolen laptops to fund a drug habit.
