Ex-DISD Official Ruben Bohuchot Gets 11 Years In Prison

Ruben Bohuchot

Allen Gwinn just texted me with today's news: Ruben Bohuchot, the former Dallas Independent School District associate superintendent for technology indicted last year and convicted in July for screwing the district out of millions, was just sentenced in federal court. Writes Allen, U.S. District Judge Sam Lindsay has sentenced Bohuchot to 132 months in prison. Allen will update accordingly; till then, re-read the Justice Department's original announcement from May of '07, in which Bohuchot was among three men indicted on 16 counts of "offenses related to their operation of a bribery and money laundering scheme involving DISD technology contracts."
