TOWSON, Md. (AP) - A former Baltimore County schools superintendent has pleaded guilty to perjury charges for failing to disclose nearly $147,000 he earned from consulting jobs while running the district.
The Baltimore Sun reported Thursday that prosecutors are recommending that 37-year-old Dallas Dance spend 18 months in jail.
Maryland State Prosecutor Emmet C. Davitt said during a Baltimore County Circuit Court hearing that Dance sought consulting work shortly after he became superintendent in 2012. Dance had told a Chicago firm's executives that he wanted to make more money because of a divorce.
Dance resigned his $287,000-a-year job in April, citing family concerns. It later became known that he was under investigation.
Sentencing is scheduled for April 20.
