DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - Former Dallas County Schools president Larry Duncan has pleaded guilty to tax evasion as part of bribery scandal.

The U.S. Attorney Erin Nealey Cox says Duncan took almost $250,000 in campaign contributions from a company looking for contract for stop-arm cameras for Dallas County school busses and used most of the money for personal expenses, and never reported that to the IRS.

Duncan is the fifth person to plead guilty as part of the investigation, including former Dallas city councilman Dwaine Caraway.

Eric Jackson is the special agent in charge of the FBI's Dallas division.

Duncan faces up to a year in prison.
