Seton Principal Admits Shoplifting Incident


The principal at the Seton Catholic High School has admitted that she was arrested in the spring after walking out of a store without paying for her groceries.
Kathleen Dwyer addressed the allegations in a letter to the school community this week. She says shoplifting charges were initially filed but later dropped.
While at the store in April, Dwyer says she was distracted by a few phone calls from a friend dying of cancer and started to leave without paying for the groceries.  Employees stopped her and called police.
Dwyer wrote in her letter that the situation was “unfortunate, unintentional and clearly a misunderstanding.”
The Catholic Diocese of Syracuse says Dwyer remains as the principal at the school. The diocese is in charge of Seton and the other Catholic schools in Broome County.
