Wire fraud

A Georgia man bonded out of federal custody, after pleading not guilty to four felony charges of wire fraud stemming from a scheme taking place in February, and involving bond payments from the San Felipe Del Rio Consolidated Independent School District.

A Georgia man accused of stealing more than $2 million from Del Rio’s public school district pleaded not guilty to the four charges he is facing.

Donald Ray Lockard, 66, of Douglasville, Georgia, entered the plea via video conference in front of United States Magistrate Collis White on Aug. 27. He was released on a $50,000 bond after pleading not guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and three counts of wire fraud, court documents show. All counts are felonies.
