Former school administrator makes plea deal related to Jon White case


Gene Amberg was facing one count of failing to report suspected child abuse.

In November 2006, parents of a Thomas Paine student contacted Amberg with concerns about White based on conversations they had with their daughter. Amberg contacted the former principal Janice Bradley who discussed the matter with White.

Amberg authorized an internal investigation but did not contact DCFS, Which is required by state law. As part of the agreement, Amberg will spend 18 months on probation and pay $2,000 in fines.
