"The former Campbell County School Director and another former district employee were arrested by the TBI Friday.

Michael Martin, 62 and of Jacksboro, and Karen Bundren, 52 and of Tazewell, were indicted by a grand jury earlier in the day.

Bundren served as the district's director of federal projects.

According to TBI spokesperson Kristin Helm, both are charged with one count of theft of property over $1,000, two counts of official misconduct, two counts of forgery, two counts of tampering with government records, and two counts of falsifying education and academic records.

TBI investigators said Bundren submitted paperwork to the Campbell County Finance Office and the State Department of Education indicating she had a doctorate.

That allowed her to collect $5,000 more in pay than she was due between September 2009 and October 2010, Helm said in a news release.

In October, the District Attorney General asked the TBI to investigate after both Martin and Bundren resigned abruptly.

Martin and Bundren were released from jail on $5,000 bond Friday evening."

Is this the same Micheal Martin that was with our school system? If so I wonder what kind of shady dealings he got away with here.

I love him. I will pray for him. The Bible says to forgive.

I, too, will pray for him and Karen but God does not sanction sin although he loves the sinner. We reap what we sow and the crop that Martin and Bundren planted was not providing nourishment for our children or the teachers/principals in our county.

These are two EVIL people.
