DALLAS (AP) - A former Dallas school administrator and a vendor
who did millions of dollars worth of business with the district are
found guilty of bribery and other charges today.
The Dallas Morning News reports Ruben Bohuchot and Frankie
Logyang Wong were found guilty of a total of 23 counts, including
bribery, conspiracy to commit bribery and conspiracy to commit
money laundering.
Wong and his wife had no reaction when the verdict was
announced. Bohuchot appeared stoic but his wife, Becky, collapsed
outside the courtroom.
The case stemmed from an indictment in which William Frederick
Coleman III, the former Dallas deputy superintendent and chief
operating officer, and Bohuchot were accused of taking kickbacks to
help win contracts for Wong's company.
Wong and Bohuchot face 10 years imprisonment and a fine of
$250,000 for each bribery count and 20 years to $500,000 for money
laundering.
The jury will return tomorrow to decide whether they will have
to forfeit $2.1 million related to the charges against them.
