Another figure in CPS corruption case set to plead guilty 

Mar 16, 2016 by

One of the co-owners of the principal training business that received nearly $23 million in no-bid contracts from Chicago Public Schools in deals that cost the CEO her job —  and potentially her freedom  —  has indicated he plans to plead guilty in a federal criminal case.

Thomas Vranas, 35,  is expected to change his plea to guilty to a conspiracy charge at a hearing on April 12, his attorney, Michael Monico, said. Vranas faces a maximum of five years in prison.

His co-defendant, Gary Solomon, 47, has pleaded not guilty to more than a dozen criminal charges stemming from the alleged steering of contracts to The SUPES Academy and Synesi Associates by disgraced former schools chief Barbara Byrd-Bennett in exchange for kickbacks.
