MANSFIELD, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Former DeSoto Parish schools Superintendent Walter C. Lee's legal troubles are far from being over.

District Attorney Richard Johnson says he will contact the Legislative Auditor's office to inquire if auditors would be available to go further back in school board records to check Lee's spending habits.

A grand jury indicted Lee on two counts of felony theft and one count each public contract fraud and malfeasance. The charges stem from allegations outlined in an audit report.

Lee is accused of double-billing expenses to the school district and the Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education, of which he is an elected member, in addition to personally benefiting from the return of a leased vehicle and intentionally performing his duties as a superintendent in an unlawful manner.
