NEW CITY, N.Y. (AP) - Rockland County prosecutors say a former school administrator did not conspire with teachers to raise their pay.

The Journal News (http://lohud.us/RO6JxH ) says prosecutors have filed a motion to revise the 187-count indictment against Brian Miele.

Miele was accused in 2012 of falsifying records when he was assistant superintendent of human resources in the Ramapo Central School District.

Prosecutors say he gave extra professional development and education credits to some teachers who hadn’t earned them.

Prosecutor Gary Lee Heavner said Wednesday the DA’s office interviewed 70 teachers and staff members and determined Miele acted alone in making pay decisions that cost taxpayers nearly $2.6 million.

Miele’s attorney says he’ll ask for the indictment to be dismissed.

Miele had previously been a county legislator and mayor of Hillburn.
