He stole over $11,000 from the high school’s girl’s and boy’s soccer teams, according to the website. He handles finances of public school in the area, as well as STLCC.

According to Case.Net, Tate’s case was filed on Sept. 10, 2014. He was held on a cash-only $25,000 bond and it is unclear if that bond was met.

The description of the charges is “Theft/Stealing (Value Of Property Or Services Is $500 Or More But Less Than $25,000),” according to Case.Net.

He was arrested by the St. Louis County Police Department. His hearing is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 9 at 9:00 a.m.
