Man who funneled bribes to Dallas County Schools officials agrees to plea deal

A lawyer who helped conceal kickbacks agreed to plead guilty for his part in a bribery scheme that brought down Dallas County Schools.

Richard Reynolds funneled payments from the president of a Louisiana camera company to Rick Sorrells, the former superintendent of the DCS transportation agency that provided busing to area school districts, according to court documents.

The head of a technology company paid Sorrells over $3 million in bribes for several years to ensure that DCS purchased stop-arm camera equipment. Force Multiplier Solutions ended up with $70 million in contracts with the agency.
