YUKON — A former Yukon vocational agriculture teacher said he charged a couple $7,000 for a show calf that cost just $2,750, documents obtained from the school district show.
Jason Bow, who resigned his position as agriculture instructor at the end of the 2010-11 school year, reportedly told a fraud examiner hired by the district that he charged Randy and Debbie Wright more than twice what he paid for the calf in order to cover the costs of livestock that had died.
The FFA program at Yukon Public Schools, which is among the largest in the state, is being investigated by the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation in connection with the incident involving the Wrights, who claim in a lawsuit that they were defrauded by Bow and another district employee.
Martin Solorzano, an OSBI agent working on the case, said the agency expects to submit its final report to local prosecutors in the coming weeks, possibly by the end of February.
