Kickback scheme alleged in Lawrence

The State Ethics Commission is accusing a former ­Lawrence High School teacher of paying kickbacks to School Depart­ment employees so they would steer contracts to his small business.

“I am innocent,” Algird ­Sunskis, 65, of Lanesborough said Monday night. “I have great difficulty believing that the people in authority and respon­sible positions at ­Lawrence public [schools] would be forced to destroy me with their lies. I just don’t know what they fear.”
