Search warrants reveal details of FBI raid of Concept Schools
by Dan Mihalopoulos
The recent FBI raid at the Des Plaines headquarters of Concept Schools focused on many of the politically connected charter-school operator's top administrators and companies with close ties to Concept, according to federal documents obtained by the Chicago Sun-Times.
Authorities last month said FBI agents carried out raids at 19 Concept locations in Illinois, Indiana and Ohio as part of an "ongoing white-collar crime matter" but declined to provide further details of their investigation.
Copies of the search warrants that FBI agents served in Des Plaines and a subpoena seeking records show investigators went hunting for a wide range of documents pertaining to Concept president Sedat Duman, founder Taner Ertekin and other current and former executives of the fast-growing charter network.
