Retired UNT prof admits to public corruption
SHERMAN, Texas — An embezzlement investigation could land a retired University of North Texas professor in federal prison for a decade.
James Jarrett Glass pleaded guilty yesterday in Sherman to public corruption charges.
No sentencing date was immediately set.
Prosecutors say the 63-year-old educator used more than $463,000 worth of public funds and services -- in his private business.
Glass was director of the U-N-T Survey Research Center from 1993 until 2006, when he retired.
He faces a fine of up to $250,000, plus could have to pay restitution to the school in Denton.
A U-N-T spokeswoman says Glass used school facilities, supplies, equipment and staff to do research for his business.
Glass had no immediate comment. He's free on his own recognizance, pending sentencing.
