Former Baltimore County school superintendent Dallas Dance was indicted today on four counts of perjury for failing to disclose nearly $147,000 in pay he received for private consulting with several companies and school districts beginning in 2012, the Maryland State Prosecutor announced.
The four-count indictment handed down by a Baltimore County grand jury alleges the former superintendent falsely stated on financial disclosure forms filed with the county school district that he earned no money from his consulting company, Deliberate Excellence, in 2012, 2013 and 2015.
Each perjury count carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in jail.
Dance was hired in July 2012 and announced his resignation from the school district last April. He left his position at the end of June, with three years remaining on his $287,000-a-year contract. In 2016 Dance amended his financial disclosure forms for 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 to report that he had earned a total of $79,000 as an adjunct professor at the University of Richmond.
