Former school superintendent pleads guilty to conspiracy

Trial Settlement

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – A former school superintendent has pleaded guilty to conspiracy in a virtual school fraud case.

Trey Holladay, the former superintendent of the Athens city school system, pleaded guilty to the conspiracy charge on Thursday in Montgomery federal court.

Prosecutors said that Holladay was involved in a complicated scheme to fraudulently enroll private school students in public virtual schools in north Alabama.

Prosecutors said that Holladay, and his co-defendants, would then take portions of the additional state money given to the school systems for their own personal use.

Tom Sisk, the former superintendent for Limestone County, previously pleaded guilty in the case.
