Two parents get deferred judgement in Price Lab case


WATERLOO (KWWL) --  Two parents who were accused of lying to get reduced or free tuition at the Malcolm Price Lab School have received deferred judgements.

Flora DeKock and Angie Gilbert pleaded guilty to Tampering with Records earlier this year.  They were charged back in 2007 for giving fake addresses to make it look like they lived in the residency zone of Price Lab.

The deferred judgement means the crime will come off their record if they complete one year of self probation.

Judge Richard Stochl also dismissed their $625 civil penalty but ordered the two to pay court costs.

While the school did not seek damages from DeKock or Gilbert, earlier this week, the University of Northern Iowa and the Iowa Board of Regents filed a civil suit against another family involved.

The suit seeks more than $30,000 from Todd and Kristi Eastman who were convicted in January of records tampering.

It's similar to a lawsuit filed against former State Rep. Kerry Burt by UNI and the regents.
