In federal court on Friday, David Glasrud – the former administrator of Southwest Learning Centers – was sentenced to five years for theft, fraud and making false statements. Prosecutors say that, for nearly 15 years, Glasrud ran a series of schemes to defraud his organization of federal funds.

That included creating a bogus business to contract with the schools while providing zero services.

Glasrud has also been ordered to repay $3 million.
