Former School Official Pleads Guilty to Fraud
(2007-10-03)
(wgvu) - CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A former Chippewa Valley Schools
executive has pleaded guilty to defrauding the district between
July 1988 and February 2006.
James Tague of Clarkston on Tuesday admitted to giving school
contracts to companies in which he had a personal interest. He was
charged with spending more than $2 million on furniture and
equipment at a company he partly owned.
The Detroit Free Press and The Detroit News report that the
60-year-old Tague faces 3 to 4 years in federal prison and a
$250,000 fine under the plea agreement.
He is to be sentenced January 15th in U.S. District Court in
Detroit.
Another hearing will be held to determine how much restitution
Tague owes the Macomb County school district.
