In hopes of gaining early release from prison, former Clyde-Green Springs Schools superintendent Todd Helms has paid back a sizeable amount of money he stole from the district.
Helms used his pension account to repay more than $240,000. He still owes about $32,000. Helms was sent to prison in 2010, after pleading guilty to 10 felony charges, for falsifying invoices, putting district money in his own accounts, and misusing the district’s credit card. As part of a deal with prosecutors, he agreed to turn over his pension to the Clyde-Green Springs Schools. Possible early release after five years was part of the deal as well. A judge will decide on his request next month.
