Former Superintendent Indicted on Bribery Conspiracy Charges

The U.S. Department of Justice has announced that former Montcalm Area (Michigan) Intermediate School District superintendent Bradley J. Hansen has been indicted on two charges related to accepting a bribe from a vendor. The first count of accepting a bribe is related to conspiring with an Internet service provider vendor to sign a three year contract in exchange for $60,000 in free goods and serivces. On the second count, Hansen has been indicted for depriving MAISD and the citizens of Michigan of his honest services related to the E-rate program.

“Today’s indictment demonstrates the Department’s resolve to hold accountable individuals who frustrate efforts to help our nation’s school children,” said Christine A. Varney, Assistant Attorney General in charge of the Department’s Antitrust Division. “The Department has charged the former school superintendent with selling his office for personal gain.”

The inappropriate conduct to which Hansen has been indicted dates back to 2001 through 2004 and potentially affected schools throughout western Michigan. He was also charged with obstructing justice in 2007 related to this investigation.
