SAN DIEGO (AP) — A former San Diego school superintendent has pleaded guilty in a scandal for soliciting money for a contract.

U-T San Diego reports Manuel Paul, the ex-head of the San Ysidro School District, entered his plea Wednesday to a misdemeanor charge of deprivation of benefit for political contribution.

Under the deal, the 63-year-old Paul will have to pay a $100,000 fine.

Federal court documents show Paul demanded $3,600 in political contributions from a contractor in order to be considered for construction contracts.

Paul recently pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of filing a false document in a related corruption probe. Sentencing in that case is set for Nov. 18.
