Sentencing has been delayed for former Skiatook superintendent Dr. Gary Johnson. In July, Johnson pleaded guilty to four counts of accepting bribes. His sentencing has now been pushed back to December 12.
In February 2010 the district suspended Johnson after a state audit found that he had mishandled hundreds of thousands of dollars. A Tulsa County grand jury indicted Johnson in 2010, then he pleaded guilty on July 13th to four counts of accepting cash bribes from Rick Enos, a school custodial supplies and security equipment vendor.
Records show a 500 percent purchase mark up over the course of six years. The state audit found that the district paid Enos about $570,000 more than it would have paid for custodial supplies had they been bought directly.
Johnson resigned from his position as Superintendent. Each count of accepting bribes carries up to ten years of prison time and a $5,000 fine.
Rick Enos will be in court on Wednesday for a preliminary hearing.
