#BREAKING The former chief operating officer of the Houston Independent School District (HISD), Brian Busby, and HISD contract vendor Anthony Hutchison have been indicted for public corruption. Several other former HISD officials have admitted guilt in the case. #HouNews
#FBI Houston special agents took Busby and Hutchison into custody this morning. They are expected to make their initial appearances before U.S. Magistrate Judge Andrew Edison at 2 p.m. #HouNews
Today's arrests & related charges are the result of a lengthy, multifaceted FBI Houston investigation. Houston taxpayers & the thousands of HISD students, along with their teachers and staff, are the potential victims of this alleged multimillion-dollar public corruption scheme.
Any information about this case or other public corruption allegations affecting the greater Houston community and surrounding areas can be reported via HoustonCorruption@FBI.gov. #HouNews #publiccorruption
The 26-count indictment charges Busby and Hutchison with conspiring to engage in a bribery scheme. Busby allegedly helped award HISD construction and grounds maintenance contracts to Hutchison in return for cash bribes and hundreds of thousands of dollars in home remodeling.
According to indictment, once Busby & Hutchison learned of the federal criminal probe, they took steps to interfere in the investigation. Both are charged w/conspiracy, bribery concerning programs receiving federal funds & witness tampering. Hutchison is also charged w/wire fraud
