Former Greenville Superintendent learns his sentence

The former Superintendent of the Greenville Public School District has been sentenced to more than six years in prison for accepting kickbacks related to a reading program for the schools. A federal judge gave Harvey Franklin 76 months, which is about six years and three months, in prison for a bribery scheme in which he allegedly accepted kickbacks from a Georgia businesswoman to influence the school board into purchasing her 1.4 million dollar reading program. Franklin’s attorney has said they are considering appealing to try to get the sentence shortened.
