Oklahoma businessman sentenced for federal bribery charges in Skiatook school scandal

TULSA - An Oklahoma businessman accused in the Skiatook Public Schools bribery scandal was sentenced in federal court Friday.

Businessman Rick Enos previously pleaded guilty to federal charges of soliciting and accepting bribes.

Federal prosecutors say Enos and former Skiatook Superintendent Dr. Gary Johnson defrauded the government from May 2004 to July 2010.

The scheme involved inflated prices on school supplies and kickbacks.

Earlier this month a judge sentenced Johnson to one year behind bars.

On Friday, Enos was sentenced to 15 months in prison and $398,990 restitution to be paid concurrently with state restitution, which totals more than $600,000.

Upon release he will serve three years probation.
