GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Three University of North Carolina Greensboro employees have been fired after they were accused of filing false time sheets.

The News & Record of Greensboro reported (https://bit.ly/YM24iB) all three of those terminated had worked in the university relations department.

Former staff photographers Christopher Woodrow English and David Simmons Wilson are accused of working freelance jobs while on the clock for the school.

A third former department employee, Lyda Adams Carpen, is accused of signing fraudulent time sheets.

School attorney Imogene Cathey confirmed the firings Tuesday but would not provide other information.

An attorney for English and Wilson said they are appealing the firing. An attorney for Carpen could not be reached.

The university began its investigation Sept. 4, UNCG Police Chief Jamie Herring said.

The lawyer for English and Wilson, Ken Free, said the school did not release the dates they did freelance work during UNCG’s time.

The three former employees face between four and eight months in prison if they are convicted.
