People v. Hubbard, 216444

In a case in which a school superintendent was convicted of violating Penal Code section 424, a criminal statute enacted in 1872 proscribing the misuse of public funds, the Court of Appeals' judgment that defendant could not be criminally liable under section 424 is reversed where: 1) section 424 applies only to those public officers imbued with such responsibility over public money; and 2) sufficient evidence supported the jury's verdict finding that defendant was charged with the 'receipt, safekeeping, transfer, or disbursement' of public funds.
