Former Athens, Limestone Co. school officials agree on payback totals to state
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - Former school officials linked to Athens City Schools and Limestone County Schools have reached agreements on repayment totals to the Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE).
Former Athens superintendent, William Lee “Trey” Holladay, pleaded guilty in December 2021 to a conspiracy charge. On June 23, Holladay reached an agreement to pay nearly $2.9 million.
Co-defendants in the scheme, Gregory Earl Corkren, David Webb Tutt and William Richard Carter also reached agreements to pay money to the ALSDE.
In previous court documents, Carter had not agreed to pay restitution to ALSDE.
Corkren and Carter will each pay nearly $1.4 million and Tutt will pay $258,920.04. Corkren, Tutt and Sisk entered guilty pleas to conspiracy to defraud the government in 2021.
The parties agreed that Thomas Michael Sisk did not contribute to the losses and will not be liable to pay restitution.
