TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - News 10 has learned former Vigo County School Corporation employee Franklin Fennell will appeal his guilty verdict and sentence.

In December, Fennell was convicted of stealing more than $110,000 from the Vigo County School Corporation.

On April 19th Fennell was sentenced to 24 months at a federal camp and ordered to pay back $110,600 in restitution.

According to court documents, Fennell plans to appeal both.
