A former Baltimore County schools superintendent who served on prominent national education panels has been sentenced to serve six months behind bars after pleading guilty to perjury charges.

The sentencing marked another milestone on a dramatic downward trajectory for Dallas Dance, a charismatic and highly ambitious administrator who was just 30 in 2012 when he was chosen to lead the 111,000-student Baltimore County schools.

Over years, Dance failed to report that he earned nearly $150,000 for part-time consulting work while superintendent and worked on the side for a company that won an $875,000 no-bid contract in his district.

Dance will also face two years of supervised probation and 700 hours of community service.
