Indictment: 3 state grants key in scheme:
"According to the indictment, Ecclesia College would write checks, approved by Paris, to a consulting firm owned by Shelton "as a pass-through." Shelton, a mutual friend of Paris and Woods, would deposit the checks and make payments to Woods, it says.
Paris did not tell his college's board he paid $267,000 to a consulting business owned by his friend until October 2015, after federal investigators questioned him about it, his indictment says.
In one transaction, Paris authorized $50,000 to Shelton's firm on Sept. 27, 2013 -- the same day Paris signed an agreement for the college to accept a $200,000 state General Improvement Fund grant, the indictment says. Shelton used the $50,000 that day to open an account for his business, which had been incorporated the day before, the document reads.
Less than a week later, on or about Oct. 1, 2013, Shelton transferred by wire $40,000 from that business account directly into the personal bank account of Woods, who had directed the grant to the college.
The college's board of governance awarded Paris a $25,000 bonus Oct. 3, 2013 -- the day the college deposited the check, the indictment says."
