Ex-superintendent Pleads Guilty to Bribery (Jul 13, 2011)

TULSA, Okla. (AP) — The former superinterendent of Skiatook Public Schools has pleaded guilty to accepting bribes totaling $10,000 from a contractor for the school system.

Gary Johnson pleaded guilty Wednesday morning in Tulsa County District Court. He admitted accepting a bribe with the intent to influence his recommendation to the school board on the purchase of custodial supplies and security equipment.

He was indicted last year by a grand jury following a critical state audit that said the district overpaid more than $560,000 for those custodial supplies and security equipment by buying them through a middleman rather than directly from suppliers.

Defense attorney Rob Nigh says Johnson accepts responsibility for his actions and apologizes to all the people affected.
