Charges expected in Detroit Schools investigations

DETROIT – Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy and schools emergency financial manager Robert Bobb have scheduled a press conference Wednesday.

Bobb has conducted a number of audits into the district's muddled finances, spending, benefits eligibility and public safety department since being appointed earlier this year by Gov. Jennifer Granholm.

Audits released last week revealed the district has been paying $2.1 million per year in health coverage for ineligible dependents, boxes of unused BlackBerry phones and 11 motorcycles.

The district is facing a projected $259 million deficit.
