The onetime Rockford public school superintendent has been charged with embezzlement after authorities say he spent more than $42,000 on a work credit card over about a 20-month period on electronics and other items until shortly before he resigned.

Paul Durand, 63, was charged Friday in Wright County District Court with 11 felony counts of embezzlement of public funds that spans from February 2018 until October 2019. Durand was also charged with three counts of theft by swindle.

After leading the district since 2010, Durand and the school board reached a "separation agreement" on Nov. 18 that led to his resignation.
