Former B.A. Superindendent Indicted on Two Felonies

Aug 30, 2012

Oklahoma’s multicounty grand jury indicts James David Sisney, former Broken Arrow School Superintendent, on two felony charges.

Sisney’s plea is not guilty, both to a count of bribery and to a count of conspiracy against a school district.

A corporation, Windstream Communications, was also named in the indictment, but did not enter a plea in court Thursday.

There have been allegations in the past the Sisney accepted tickets to the Final Four from Windstream while the company was a vendor for Broken Arrow schools. 

Both Sisney and Windstream’s attorneys waived readings of the indictments in open court, and both the Attorney General’s representatives and Sisney’s attorneys declined to comment.

Sisney was fired from Broken Arrow Public Schools in 2008 amid accusations of wrongdoing.

Judge Kellough says he expects the case to go to trial next March or April.

Sisney has been arraigned on both counts, and his bond is set at $15,000.
