Former School Official Gets ARD in Wiretapping Case

Thomas Drago had been accused of illegally recording private meeting with school officials.

The Easton Area School District's former technology director has entered a first-time offenders program after being accused of illegally recording a private meeting. 

That's according to the Morning Call, which says Thomas Drago's record will be expunged following a year on probation and a psychiatric evaluation.

Drago, 54, of Bushkill Township, resigned from his post in late 2012, just before the district began investigating whether he had been spying on his colleagues.

Police say investigators eventually learned Drago had used his iPhone to audio tape an "Act 93" meeting in March 2012. He was charged in August of last year with one count of felony wiretapping.

The event was a "meet and discuss" session involving certain employees of the Easton Area School District regarding the negotiation of salaries, budgets and other concerns for Act 93 employees.
