The corruption cases from three South Bay school districts — Sweetwater Union High School, Southwestern College, and San Ysidro Elementary — are wrapping up. On June 20, Greg Sandoval, former Sweetwater trustee and former Southwestern administrator, went before judge Ana España in the South Bay courthouse.

Star News reporter Robert Moreno tweeted from the courthouse on Friday afternoon, “Sandoval is sentenced to 180 custodial days, 45 which he has to serve in jail and remaining 135 in house arrest.” In addition, Sandoval will have to pay a fine of approximately $8000.

Sandoval served as a Sweetwater trustee in 2006 when Jesus Gandara was appointed as superintendent. The first day on the job, Gandara, Sandoval, and Gary Cabello, a bond underwriter who has also been sentenced in the proceedings, sat down together for tea.

After pleading guilty earlier this year, Sandoval was suspended in April from his job as vice president at Moreno Valley College.

Former superintendent of the San Ysidro Elementary School District Manuel Paul and suspended Sweetwater trustee Bertha Lopez will appear in court for sentencing on June 24.
