Guess that "continuing to embezzle from your charter school while facing charges of embezzling from your charter school" didn't go over so well — the prosecutors said they were going for three years instead of two because Skief was, essentially, a big douchebag (well, they referred to the "audacious and repeated nature" of his crimes, but same diff), and they got 'em.
UPDATE: Philly.com's got the full details.
