DALLAS – A former administrator with a Dallas-area school district has admitted that he received kickbacks and other benefits by falsifying immigration documents, so that the teachers of Latin America and elsewhere can do the work in his district.
Sixty-three-year-old Victor Leos pleaded guilty in federal court Tuesday to conspiracy to commit false statements on immigration documents.
Leos was the human resources director for Garland schools, and prosecutors say that from 2007 to 2012 he worked with outside recruiters for the foreign teachers to the Pendulum.
He submitted false statements entry of qualified AMERICAN applicants could not be found for open positions, so that the bilingual teachers from abroad were needed.
Foreign teachers recruited later were denied citizenship and forced to leave the US.
He is scheduled for sentencing in August and faces up to five years in prison.
