AMITE CITY, LA (WVUE) -

A guilty plea from a Tangipahoa School Board member in a racketeering and theft case will force him out of office.

The state attorney general's office said Eric Dangerfield and his wife, Cassandra, admitted their guilt in a tax evasion and Medicaid rip-off scheme.

Investigators said the couple set up a phony personal-care services company to bill more than $18 million to Medicaid from 2002 to 2009.

The Dangerfields admit they spent the money on luxury items, their son's college tuition, and Eric Dangerfield's school board campaign.

The couple will have to pay restitution, and state law requires Dangerfield to resign by August.
