PHILADELPHIA (AP) - An associate of the convicted son of a former Philadelphia congressman has been convicted of ripping off the Philadelphia School District and using the money to pay for improvements at his home and vacation condo.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports David Shulick was found guilty on Tuesday of skimming $800,000 from a $2.1 million contract his former company had to run an alternative school.

He’s the ex-president of a defunct for-profit education firm with ties to Chaka “Chip” Fattah Jr.

His lawyers tried to pin the blame on Fattah, who served as his No. 2 for a time at the Delaware Valley High School Management Corp.

Fattah was sentenced to prison for misspending loans and some of the nearly $1 million in education funds he got as a school management subcontractor.
