At the end of March, federal officials accused 12 Detroit Public Schools principals and an administrator of taking bribes from a man named Norman Shy.
Investigators alleged the school officials conspired with Shy to receive gift cards, cash or checks in return for false sales through his school supply business.
On Wednesday, Shy appeared in court and confirmed those accusations. Newsy’s partners at WXYZ report Shy pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit bribery and federal tax evasion.
