BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- Marilyn Taylor, a former popular elementary school principal, was sentenced to a special probation program on Thursday, for gambling away her students’ activity funds, according to the Connecticut Post.

Taylor, who now works at Target and Wal-Mart stores in Georgia, was granted an accelerated rehabilitation following a hearing before state Superior Court Judge Robert Devlin, said the newspaper.

Under the accelerated rehabilitation, a pretrial program for nonviolent offenders, Taylor was placed on one-year probation. If she does not commit any crimes during the probation, the charge against her will be dropped, reported the Post.

Since her arrest, Taylor has participated in an inpatient treatment program and is attending Gambling Anonymous, the paper added.
