Dothan, AL (WTVY)-- A former headmaster at Ashford Academy admits he embezzled money from the school and its board of directors.

Douglas Bauer entered pleas in Houston County Circuit Court this week to 25 felonies including Theft of Property and Possession of a Forged Instrument.

He admitted stealing more than $37,000 while in charge of the private school that closed nearly three years ago due to declining and financial issues.

Bauer will be sentenced, and a probation hearing held in April.
