Andre Hornsby served as the head Prince George’s County Schools (Maryland) for nearly two years from June 2003 until May 2005. Hornsby was convicted in July 2008 for wire fraud, witness and evidence tampering and obstruction of justice relating to steering lucrative consulting contracts which included awarding an E-rate contract to an associate in exchange for kickbacks. Hornsby was sentenced yesterday to a six year federal prison term. Along with the prison term Hornsby must pay a fine of $20,000, plus $70,000 to Prince George's County in restitution for the $345,000 private report the county paid for to investigate Hornsby's dealings.
