Ex-Pontiac Schools Administrator Indicted For Fraud

PONTIAC (WWJ) – A former assistant superintendent for Pontiac Schools has been indicted on corruption and money laundering charges.

The 40-year-old Jummane Sledge of Bloomfield Hills is accused of taking $236,000 in district funds. Sledge allegedly deposited a vendor check into an account he controlled and used the money for personal expenses.

“Corruption in any form is a serious crime, but when a defendant steals from a school district, he robs children of funds intended for their education and their future,” said U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade in a statement.

If convicted, Sledge faces the possibility of 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $500,000. The Indictment also seeks forfeiture of more than $236,000.
