OKC Businessman Gets 15 Months in Skiatook Case
TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- An Oklahoma City businessman has been sentenced to 15 months in federal prison for fraud following an investigation involving Skiatook Public Schools
U.S. Attorney Danny Williams says Rickey Enos was sentenced Friday for conspiracy to defraud the government. He was also ordered to pay $338,999 in restitution to the school district.
Prosecutors say Enos submitted invoices to former Skiatook Superintendent Gary Johnson for supplies and services at prices that were as much as 400 percent over fair market value. Johnson would approve payments in exchange for cash, tickets to college football games and travel and entertainment costs.
Johnson was previously sentenced to a year in prison for conspiracy and ordered to pay $207,590 in restitution.
Enos' defense attorney, Ann Ellen Keele, did not immediately return a telephone call seeking comment.

SHAWNEE, Okla. (AP) -- Oklahoma's state medical examiner's office says a second person was killed by a tornado that leveled a central Oklahoma mobile home park.
Office spokeswoman Amy Elliott on Monday identified the two people who are confirmed to have been killed during Sunday's storms as 79-year-old Glen Irish and 76-year-old Billy Hutchinson. Both men were from Shawnee.
One of several tornadoes that touched down in parts of the nation's midsection on Sunday leveled the Steelman Estates Mobile Home Park near Shawnee.
It wasn't immediately clear if both victims lived at the mobile home park.
