Former Mason County superintendent is indicted

May 27, 2014 

The former superintendent of the Mason County public schools has been indicted over accusations that he took thousands of dollars in public money or property for his own use.

Timothy G. Moore, 58, was indicted May 23 on one count of abuse of public trust over $10,000, a class C felony.

Moore is accused of failing "to make the required payment or disposition" of the money or property, which was less than $100,000, from 2007 to 2012, Attorney General Jack Conway said Tuesday. Conway's office began investigating in February 2013 after receiving a letter from Kentucky Education Commissioner Terry Holliday. An audit was conducted by the state auditor.

Moore is scheduled to be arraigned June 13 in Mason Circuit Court.
