Johnston Pleads guilty in school fraud case

A former maintenance supervisor for Bossier Parish schools admitted today he was a ringleader in a scheme to help a company steal three quarters of a million dollars from the taxpayers through rigged bids and overcharges on air condition work.
Randy Johnston's guilty plea means all but one of the defendants in the case have admitted to wrongdoing. The fifth is expected to plead guilty next month. Each faces up to 20 years in prison.
In the mail fraud count Johnston admitted to, the school system was billed for putting two air conditioners on the auditorium of an elementary school that didn't have an auditorium.
