Michael Dudeck, a former Forest Hill High School teacher and assistant football coach was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly providing fraudulent transcripts to allow students whom did not meet the requirements to play varsity football to be eligible to play for the team.
The arrest affidavit states, Michael Dudeck provided fraudulent transcripts to the guidance office at Forest Hill High School and William Dwyer High School.
The false documentation stated the students had successfully completed summer school classes.
The arrest affidavit stated, "research conducted on the students with the false transcripts indicate the students have played sports (varsity football) for their respective schools after receiving the credit for the fictitious summer school session."
Dudeck faces two felony counts of falsifying documents and receiving unlawful compensation.
According to the arrest affidavit, one of the students stated, he was ineligible to play because of his low grades and Coach Dudeck told him he would provide the school with a summer school transcript so that he would be able to play.
Dudeck allegedly received $300 from at least one student-athlete in exchange for the falsified documents, according to probable cause affidavit.
