(VIGO CO.) - Former Vigo County Sheriff's Deputy Frank Shahadey appeared in federal court Friday and plead guilty to two charges in connection with a kickback scheme that cost the Vigo County School Corporation more than $80,000.

The Terre Haute Tribune Star reports that Shahadey, a former school security liaison, plead guilty to charges of wire fraud and theft of government funds.

He was indicted in December along with Franklin Fennell, who handled facilities and transportation support for the school corporation.

The two men are accused of taking kickbacks from a contractor for more than two years.

Under the plea agreement, Shahadey faces a maximum prison term of up to 20 years for wire fraud and up to 10 years for theft. A judge must approve the deal and determine a sentence.

Shahadey will also pay restitution as part of the plea deal.
