Former Hawkeye Kerry Burt to Stand Trial in Address Tampering CasePosted: April 12, 2011
Former All-Big Ten defensive back Kerry Burt is expected to be in a Black Hawk County Courtroom Tuesday, on charges he used a fake address in order to enroll his kids in a University of Northern Iowa laboratory school.
Burt, a former Democratic State Representative in Waterloo, faces two counts of tampering with records. The lawmaker elected not to run for re-election beyond 2010 after being charged last year.
Prosecutors allege that Burt used an address other than his own in order to pay less tuition for two of his children to attend Malcolm Price Lab School in Cedar Falls, Iowa. Fees for students who lived in the district cost about $500 per student, compared to a $5,000 fee for those who live outside the area, according to an article in the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier.
The former Hawkeye was a four-year letterwinner (1984-1987) and a captain on the 1987 squad. He led the team with seven interceptions during the 1987 campaign.
