Former CCSD administrator enters not guilty plea

LAS VEGAS -- Former Clark County School District administrator Priscilla Rocha entered a not guilty plea Monday morning in Las Vegas District Court.

Rocha, and several other defendants in the case who also entered not guilty pleas, appeared in the Las Vegas courtroom to be arraigned.

Rocha is facing 26 counts of theft and 24 counts of unlawful use of public money. Jerome Rocha, Priscilla Rocha's son, Donnie Glacencia, Jamie Espitia and Andres Mendoza are also facing numerous counts of theft and burglary.

The I-Team first uncovered the story in March when the Metropolitan Police Department raided the district's Adult English Language Acquisition program. The program was shut down and Rocha was placed on administrative leave. Investigators determined $289,000 in public funds was misused.

Rocha, and the other defendants, will appear in court on Wednesday for a bail hearing. The District Attorney's office has expressed concern that the defendants are a flight risk.
