SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) — Prosecutors say the former business manager of the Scranton School District had taxpayers pay for work on his personal vehicles.

The Pennsylvania attorney general’s office said Friday that 58-year-old Gregg Sunday of Scranton approved the payment of more than $8,000 in taxpayer money for work done on his personal vehicles. Prosecutors say the district’s former fleet manager did the work, then billed the district. He was charged last year.

Sunday was arraigned Friday on a charge of conflict of interest. He was released on unsecured bail. His lawyer says he’s cooperating and a plea agreement is in the works.

Sunday retired in 2017 after 33 years with the district.
