A former Holgate school board member pleaded guilty to charges of theft this week in Henry County Common Pleas Court.
Adam Eis, 41, of New Bavaria pleaded guilty to a fourth-degree felony charge of theft. As a result of the plea, Henry County Prosecutor Gwen Howe-Gebers has agreed to drop a charge of money laundering, a third-degree felony, at the sentencing hearing.
Eis is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 24 at 1 p.m.
The charges stem from an organization Eis and a co-defendant, Jason Schwartz, 46, of North Baltimore started called NETS that would find locations to host basketball games, such as during a tournament. According to the indictment, the allegations occurred from January 2018 through December 2020, and the value of money involved in the theft charge was $7,500 or more.
Eis resigned from his seat on the Holgate school board last week.
