Hampshire music teacher arrested for embezzlement

Choral director turns self in for pocketing fundraiser cash

ROMNEY, W.Va. — A Hampshire High School music teacher was arrested for embezzlement earlier this month, according to Hampshire County Sheriff John Alkire.

Bradley W. Tenney, 45, of Winchester, Va., turned himself in to the sheriff’s office Jan. 10, admitting to taking $781 from a fundraiser at the school, Alkire told the Times-News on Friday.

Tenney was the director of the choral group Harmony.

Harmony members, according to officials, were raising money to go to New York.

Officials reported to the Times-News that they understood Tenney was depositing checks received for the trips, but not depositing the cash.

Alkire said the alleged embezzlement is a misdemeanor and a hearing would be scheduled in magistrate court.

The Hampshire County Magistrate Office confirmed a pretrial appearance scheduled March 12 at 2 p.m.  

Tenney has not appeared before the county board of education.

The next board meeting is Jan. 27 but Tenney is not on the agenda.

Board superintendent Marianna Leone would not comment on the case when called Friday.

Tenny posted bond for his pretrial release, said Alkire.
