November 15 sentencing set for Dallemand in tax-fraud case

A former Bibb County school superintendent finds out in November if he'll be sentenced to prison for tax fraud.
 
Romain Dallemand last month admitted in federal court in Florida that he filed false returns and failed to report bribes that he took while working as superintendent from 2011 to 2013.
 
He faces up to three years in federal prison for one count of filing a false return.
 
According to a plea agreement filed in court, Dallemand faces up to three years in prison plus fines and restitution.
 
The plea agreement says Dallemand had agreed to cooperate with federal authorities, including testifying in other cases.
 
In exchange, they agreed to recommend a lighter sentence.
 
Dallemand agreed to pay all back taxes, interest and fines that he owes and restitution of up to $275,000.
 
Dallemand now lives in Naples, Florida,  and his sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 15, at the federal court in Fort Myers.
 
He and others also face a civil lawsuit filed by the Bibb County school district for allegedly conspiring to defraud the school district of millions through computer and software sales during his time as superintendent.
