The Oklahoma Attorney General's office agreed to defer prosecution for a former Broken Arrow school superintendent originally indicted on bribery. Charges are also dropped for Windstream Corp., which was also named in the indictment.
In documents released Wednesday, the Attorney General says it dismissed bribery charges against former BA superintendent Jim Sisney.
Sisney is not to seek employment as a school administrator in the state of Oklahoma and agreed to pay $9,500 to BA schools.
Sisney has also dropped a lawsuit against the school district alleging defamation. He was fired from the district in 2008 and went on to work at Sperry schools temporarily.
A grand jury indictment handed down in September alleged Sisney accepted tickets to the 2007 NCAA Final Four from Windstream in exchange for doing telephone and internet business with BA schools.
