DALLAS COUNTY, Iowa- The former Chief Operating Officer of the Waukee School District has reached a plea deal.
Eric Rose was charged with misconduct in office, and soliciting to commit a felony, after an investigation found 130-thousand dollars in misspending.
Channel 13 WHO-TV reports Rose is pleading guilty to lesser charges, and the felony charge has been dropped.
The dropped charge stems from allegations that Rose changed time records to pay employees who ran personal errands for him during the school day.
Rose also has been fined $630 and has been granted a deferred judgement, which means the charges will be dismissed once he finishes one year of probation.
