BEAUMONT, Texas — A former supervisor for a Southeast Texas school district, his wife and a friend have pleaded guilty to a payroll scam involving the supervisor's hiring of his wife and friend.

Daryl Glenn Johnson, a former Beaumont school district supervisor, pleaded guilty to conspiracy Friday before a federal magistrate in Beaumont. Wife Erin Gipson Johnson and friend Kailyn DeShondra Pete, both former district employees, pleaded guilty to fraud.

Each could be sentenced to up to five years in federal prison. No sentencing dates have been set.

Prosecutors say Daryl Johnson put the two women on the payroll as temporary employees and approved their bogus timesheets. Erin Johnson received nearly $194,000. Pete was paid $90,000.
