GREENBELT, Md. — Former Prince George’s County schools Superintendent Andre J. Hornsby was sentenced today to a total of six years of prison time in a federal corruption case.
“I’m totally embarrassed by what situation I’ve put myself into,” Hornsby told U.S. District Judge Peter J. Messite. “I understand the seriousness of my actions. I understand mistakes were made. I understand decisions were made. This has taken a toll on myself, my family, my friends and my colleagues.”
Messite also directed Hornsby to serve three years of supervised release after he leaves prison and pay a $20,000 fine and $70,000 in restitution to the Prince George’s schools. Hornsby also will need to enroll in alcohol treatment and cooperate with the Internal Revenue Service in a probe of his tax returns, the judge said.
“Judge Messite was fair,” Hornsby told reporters after the sentencing. “He could have definitely sentenced me to a lot more.”
