Fmr. Atl. Public Schools official indicted, $60K in kickbacks alleged – Atlanta Business Chronicle

Former Atlanta Public Schools official Jerome Oberlton and another man have been indicted by a federal grand jury, accused of receiving $60,000 in kickbacks connected to a contract awarded by Atlanta Public Schools, reports the Dallas Morning News.

The seven-count indictment was unsealed on Monday, the paper said.

Oberlton, who was chief information technology officer in Atlanta, resigned last week from his post as Dallas Independent School District chief of staff, telling Superintendent Mike Miles he expected to be indicted for his work in the Atlanta school district years ago.

Oberlton’s first scheduled court appearance is Tuesday before a federal magistrate judge in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia. The charges are conspiracy, conspiracy under color of official right, money laundering conspiracy, mail fraud, wire fraud and bribery.
