Federal indictment hits Ohio charter school

COLUMBUS, Ohio – A school superintendent and three more people have been indicted on federal charges alleging they used an Ohio charter school in Dayton in a corruption conspiracy.

Federal and state officials in Columbus on Tuesday announced a grand jury indictment charging the defendants with conspiracy and with aiding and abetting federal programs bribery. The indictment states that the Arise Academy school operated through 2010 and received at least $10,000 a year in federal dollars through the state of Ohio.
