Graphics instructors arraigned
Two Riverside City College Applied Digital Media instructors were arraigned in Riverside County Criminal Court on 110 felonies on May 17.
Ross Clark pled not guilty to 106 felonies, and Terry Keiser pled not guilty to 4 felonies.
According to The Press-Enterprise, Clark is charged with 91 counts of conflict of interest, 12 counts of theft of public funds, two counts of grand theft and one count of identification theft.
Keiser is charged with three counts of theft of public funds and one count of grand theft.
Up next is a felony settlement conference on June 23.
A felony settlement conference is an informal meeting before the preliminary hearing between the prosecution, defense and the judge where a plea bargain is negotiated.
At the Board of Trustees meeting on May 18, Clark and Keiser were put on paid administrative leave. Chancellor Gregory Gray said that it is policy to place employees on paid administrative leave during legal issues until they are proven guilty and will no longer be employed at RCC.
