Arrest Warrant Out for Former College Chancellor

The alleged crimes took place between 1999 and 2006.

San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris has announced criminal charges have been filed against the former chancellor of City College of San Francisco for alleged misuse of public funds and illegal campaign contributions.

Harris said she is charging former chancellor Philip Day Jr. and two current associate vice chancellors with conspiracy, misappropriation of public funds, concealing an account of public money, grand theft, use of college funds to support a political campaign and making a political contribution in the name of another.

SFGate says the total money lost adds up to $150,000. It is also reporting Day set up a secret slush fund with a college charitable foundation that he used to buy alcohol for parties he hosted.

The alleged crimes took place between 1999 and 2006.

Two other suspects are Stephen Herman, the college's administrative services officer, and Associate Vice Chancellor James Blomquist.

Arrest warrants have been issued for all three men.

Day now heads a Washington, D.C.-based education lobby.

If convicted Day faces nine years in prison.
