Prosecutors: Convicted official faked job


UPI News Service, 09/29/2005 

Michigan prosecutors say a former school superintendent faked a job offer from a non-existent college to get permission to move to California.

A judge turned down James Redmond's request to move out of state while he appeals his conviction for felonious misconduct while he was head of the Oakland Intermediate School District, the Detroit Free Press reported.

Redmond submitted a letter purporting to come from Kaelos College saying he had been hired as a consultant and was expected to start work in mid-October. The college does not exist and the telephone numbers listed on its stationary were Redmond's cell phone and fax machine.

"It's the same old lying," Assistant State Attorney General William Rollstin said.

Redmond was convicted of misconduct for spending money that should have gone to special-needs programs, on trips to Europe and luxury purchases for himself and other officials, and giving no-bid contracts to companies he had an interest in.

Redmond's lawyers said the job was legitimate -- because he is part of a group trying to set up Kaelos College.
