Former school superintendent plans to plead guilty in scheme

Trial Gavel Sentence

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – Court documents show a former north Alabama school superintendent charged in a scheme to skim education funds told a court he wants to plead guilty to a single federal charge.

A notice filed in federal court in Montgomery shows former Athens school superintendent Trey Holladay plans to plead guilty to conspiracy. A judge hasn’t yet scheduled a hearing to accept a plea.

Holladay and Tom Sisk, the former superintendent for Limestone County, were among six people charged early this year in an alleged scheme to illegally boost and pocket school funding.
