Attorney General Jack Conway today announced the indictment of former Mason County School District Superintendent Timothy G. Moore. On May 23, Moore, 58, was charged by a Mason County grand jury with one count of abuse of a public trust over $10,000, a class C felony.
In February 2013, General Conway’s Department of Criminal Investigations (DCI) initiated an investigation of the Mason County School District after receiving a letter of referral from Kentucky Commissioner of Education Terry Holliday. The investigation followed an audit conducted by the Kentucky State Auditor’s Office and resulted in DCI investigators presenting information to the grand jury last week.
According to the indictment, from 2007 through 2012, Moore obtained and/or dealt with public monies and/or property, intentionally failed to make the required payment or disposition, and used them as his own in an amount greater than $10,000 but less than $100,000, thus committing the offense of abuse of public trust.
A criminal summons was issued and Moore will be arraigned in Mason Circuit Court on June 13. Mason County Attorney John Estill was appointed as a special prosecutor in this case.
A charge is merely an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
