South Bay corruption probe triples in size

Prosecutors had charged four officials last year, all with ties to Sweetwater Union High School District — former Superintendent Jesus Gandara, school board members Pearl Quiñones and Arlie Ricasa and former board member Greg Sandoval. They have pleaded not guilty.

Now, the case has expanded to include more officials at Sweetwater and others at two other school districts — the San Ysidro School District and Southwestern Community College District.

Four of the five sitting board members at Sweetwater — Ricasa, Quiñones, Bertha Lopez and Jim Cartmill — now stand accused.
