INDIANAPOLIS - The former leader of Indiana's schools has reached an agreement with the state over supposed ethics violations, an attorney announced Monday.
Tony Bennett, Indiana's previous Superintendent of Public Instruction, is accused of using state resources, including staff and state computers, in his failed 2012 re-election bid.
Jason Barclay, one of Bennett's attorneys, said Monday that there is an "agreed settlement" that will be reviewed by the State Ethics Commission at its regularly scheduled meeting on Thursday.
The inspector general filed the charges in November, shortly after The Associated Press reported Bennett had kept Republican Party fundraising lists on his state computers and top staff had been campaigning on state time.
Bennett issued a statement in November saying he had done nothing wrong and would cooperate with the investigation.
Barclay would not comment further, saying the details of the settlement are confidential until the time of the meeting.
The ethics commission had originally pushed back hearing Bennett’s case until Aug. 14.
