Brand falsified the records in October and November 2020. He was indicted and arrested in August 2021 for false representation to defraud the government.
He used a school district employee’s Student Management Account without their knowledge to falsify documents submitted to the Mississippi Department of Education.
The records were intentionally falsified in an effort to increase the amount of funds that the state provided to the school system.
