Former HISD Board of Education President Rhonda Skillern-Jones previously signed a plea agreement to guilty of conspiracy and could face up to five years in prison. Investigators said Skillern-Jones was paid $12,000 by Anthony Hutchison to vote on the contract.
On Friday, Houston Community College announced that Skillern-Jones had resigned from the HCC board.
“It is clear that actions took place while the trustee was serving as an elected official at another public body. This information comes as a surprise to us and is an issue we take very seriously. “, HCC wrote in a statement.
On Thursday, the FBI office in Houston announced the arrests of Brian Busby, a former school district superintendent, and Hutchison, who has been identified as a contract supplier to HISD.
Last year, 13 Investigators reported FBI search warrants executed at Busby’s home and at HISD headquarters following allegations of mismanagement.
Court documents later said that Hutchison, allegedly along with Busby, overcharged the school district for work it was contracted to do but never completed.
