A former Dallas schools deputy superintendent accused in a corruption case involving technology contracts has been sentenced to one year of probation, the Associated Press reports. William Coleman III also must pay a $5,000 fine and complete 80 hours of community service, according to court documents. He was sentenced earlier this month after pleading guilty to one count of attempting to influence members of a grand jury. Coleman was the deputy superintendent and chief operating officer of the Dallas Independent School District from August 1999 to September 2000. He was superintendent of Detroit Public Schools from 2005 until March 2007.
