Former school superintendent accused of white collar crimes

A previous superintendent in Minnesota has been charged with embezzling public money. However, he was also recently accused of bribery. Still, like other people who are accused of committing white collar crimes, he is deemed innocent unless his guilt can be proved in a court of law.

According to prosecutors, the former chief of schools solicited a construction firm to renovate his home. He also allegedly managed to use his position to cover his personal travel expenses. In addition, the man reportedly took advantage of his position to go to sporting events.

In light of the above, the man was charged with soliciting a bribe and has pleaded guilty to this charge. In addition to facing this federal charge, however, he faces more than a dozen charges of embezzlement that were filed against him at an earlier date. These charges stem from his allegedly stealing tens of thousands of dollars from his school district.

People who are accused of white collar crimes in Minnesota have the right to go to trial to fight these charges in an effort to preserve their freedom. However, if the weight of the prosecution's evidence appears to be heavy, the defendants may decide to seek to negotiate plea deals instead. A plea agreement offers the advantage of potentially leading to a lighter sentence than what a defendant may receive at trial. Still, whether a defendant goes to trial or pursues a plea deal, an attorney will push for the best outcome for him or her, given the facts of his or her case.
