Posted April 25, 2013
Goldsboro, N.C. — Sheriff's officials arrested a former Wayne County assistant superintendent Wednesday and charged him with unlawfully accepting gifts and favors from contractors and suppliers while he worked with the school system.
Donald Sprunt Hill, 61, of 204 Ramblewood Drive in Mt. Olive, was being held on a $2,500 bond.
His arrest was part of a joint investigation by the FBI and Wayne County Sheriff's Office, and the charges stem from July 1, 2007, to June 30, 2009.
The investigation began in March 2009. The school system placed Hill on administrative leave on Dec. 18, 2009, and he retired in March 2010, according to school spokesman Ken Derksen.
The state Attorney General's Office will prosecute the case. Hill's first court date is set for April 30. No other information was released.
