More sentencing hearings this week for Detroit Public Schools kickbacks

Sentencing continues Monday and Wednesday for several former Detroit Public School principals who have been convicted of stealing money from the district in a $2.7 million kickback and bribery scheme.

Stanley Johnson, former principal of Hutchinson Elementary from 2005-15, will be sentenced Monday morning before U.S. District Judge George Caram Steeh.

Johnson admitted to accepting $84,170.57 in kickbacks from ex-vendor Norman Shy, who was sentenced last week to five years in prison for orchestrating the scheme involving 13 DPS officials.

Johnson, 62, of Southfield, pleaded guilty May 4 to one count of conspiracy to commit federal program bribery, a five-year felony. Because Johnson cooperated with the government in their investigation into DPS and Shy, prosecutors are asking for a sentence between 24 and 30 months in prison.
