Plea Agreement in Former Georgia School Superintendent Prosecution

A post on Nov. 12 (here) discussed the indictment of Linda Schrenko, the first woman elected School Superintendent in Georgia and a one-time rising star in the state Republican party who was charged with defrauding over $600,000 in education funds from the federal government that she used for her failed campaign for the nomination for governor and to pay for, among other things, her cosmetic surgery.  On Monday, Jan. 10, Merle Temple, Jr., Schrenko's top deputy and a co-defendant in the case, agreed to plead guilty and cooperate in the government's prosecution. An article in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution states that Temple has agreed to pay a fine of $199,500, and will be sentenced on April 7. (ph)
