BISD pursuing money forfeited by Calvin Walker

KFDM News has learned the Beaumont school district is now trying to collect money forfeited by Calvin Walker after the district first rejected any attempt to go after the money. Walker is an electrician who pleaded guilty in 2012 to a federal tax violation of failing to pay income taxes in a timely manner.
The government dropped about three dozen other charges against Walker. The government seized millions of dollars from Walker and property.

Last year the board changed its mind and voted to allow the district to pursue about $2 million forfeited by Walker.

KFDM News learned that yesterday the district filed a claim in federal court asking for about $343,000. That is how much it believes is now available from the original amount.

It's not clear what the district might collect once attorneys' fees are considered.
