On Friday, July 3rd, Sundown ISD confirmed that member of the Board of Trustees had been indicted for misapplication of funds.

KAMC News reports that the Sundown ISD school administration was informed by law enforcement back in May of 2020 that a Hockley County grand jury returned indictments against Loralee Van Wettering.

Loralee's husband, Michael, was employed by Sundown ISD for the 2019-2020 school year.

After the discovery of the discrepancy in the operation of one of its student activities programs, the district's administration contacted police, and Michael was placed on administrative leave while the investigation was pending.

While Michael hasn't admitted to any wrongdoing, he resigned from his position with the district.
