DETROIT (AP) - A former Detroit high school principal who drove a Maserati has pleaded guilty to accepting nearly $60,000 from a company hired to perform tutoring services.

Kenyetta Wilbourn-Snapp told a federal judge on Thursday that she “betrayed the public trust.” She faces three years or more in prison on June 1, although cooperation with investigators could get her a much shorter sentence.

Wilbourn-Snapp was principal at two struggling Detroit schools, Denby and Mumford. She says payoffs were part of the education culture in Detroit.

The 40-year-old Wilbourn-Snapp also pleaded guilty to a tax crime.

Glynis Thornton pleaded guilty to conspiracy. She admits paying bribes to the principal in exchange for her company getting the work.
