Former Baltimore County schools Superintendent Dallas Dance has pleaded guilty to four counts of perjury for failing to disclose nearly $150,000 he earned from outside consulting jobs while running the school system.

Most of the money came from a company that landed an $875,000 no-bid contract less than a year after Dance began his tenure leading the 112,000-student district, which excludes Baltimore city.

Prosecutors alleged that Dance lied on his financial disclosures between 2012 and 2015, claiming he had no sources of income outside his superintendent's salary. An investigation uncovered that, during that time, several businesses paid him, including The SUPES Academy, which secured the no-bid contract with the school system. Dance owned a consulting company and earned nearly $147,000 for outside work during that time.
