In The Region:
A Cuyahoga County grand jury today re-indicted Richmond Heights schools Superintendent Robert Moore, plus the district’s head of buildings, Richard Muse. The men were accused earlier this month of shaking down a daycare operator who was leasing space from the district.

The new charges for the superintendent include records tampering, involving expense reimbursements for a trip the men took to Columbus in January. Cuyahoga County prosecutor’s spokesman Joe Frolik says Muse is also charged with tampering with records and forgery.

“In particular, he submitted several job-training certificates that claimed he had a certain level of skills and proficiency for the job being director of building and grounds. And we are charging that he forged those job-training certificates.”

The Richmond Heights school board unanimously put the pair on paid leave earlier this month. Frolik says the investigation is ongoing, and officials hope to learn more about the ties between the two men.
