An Indiana school superintendent is facing multiple felony charges after admitting to having used her own medical insurance to help one of her sick students.

Casey Smitherman of Elwood Community Schools in Elwood, In. was charged with insurance fraud, identity deception and official misconduct on Tuesday, according to court records, and faced with a warrant for her arrest. She is now out on bail and reportedly entering a diversion program that would allow those charges to be dropped contingent on her ability to avoid further arrests this year.
