Former Skiatook Superintendent Sentenced for Accepting Bribes

Posted: Updated:

TUThe former Skiatook Public Schools superintendent has been sentenced to one year and one day in prison for his role in falsifying income tax reports and accepting bribes.

Online court documents show that federal judge Claire Eagan sentenced Gary Johnson on Thursday and ordered him to pay more than $207,000 in restitution.

Federal prosecutors say Johnson conspired with an Oklahoma City businessman to defraud the government by hiding from the IRS the income he received from bribes for supplies, equipment and services paid for by the school district.

Johnson is to surrender in late March to begin serving his sentence.
