School officials get prison for theft

Associated Press Published:

CLEVELAND -- A judge has sentenced a former school superintendent to a year in prison on charges that he and another official took bribes from the operator of a childcare center renting space from their suburban Cleveland school district.

Robert Moore was superintendent of the Richmond Heights district. Buildings director Richard Muse was sentenced to 10 months in prison.

Investigators from the Cuyahoga County prosecutor's office and sheriff's department arrested the men during a sting operation Feb. 28. They had accepted a payment from the childcare operator earlier in the day.

Their attorneys did not immediately return calls seeking comment Thursday.
