Dallas County school bus executive charged in kickback case

DALLAS (AP) — The superintendent of the agency that provides school bus service to public schools in Dallas County has been charged with conspiracy relating to bribery and kickback allegations involving school bus cameras.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office said in a statement Monday that Rickey Dale Sorrels signed a plea deal Monday that calls for him to plead guilty to the conspiracy count. No arraignment date has been set.

Court documents accuse the 62-year-old Dallas man of taking more than $3 million in bribes and kickbacks to help secure more than $70 million in contracts, agreements and orders.

County residents voted on Nov. 7 to abolish the agency.

A telephone number for Sorrells couldn’t be found to seek a comment.
