Medical college in Chamblee allegedly involved in bribery scheme

Each time a DeKalb County employee sent a student to a college for medical career training, federal prosecutors say he received a $100 bribe from the college’s president.

But which college was paying the bribes?

Emails obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution show that Malik College President Rashid Malik said he was blackmailed for the bribes. “No money, no students,” Malik wrote in an email to a DeKalb workforce manager.

Malik isn’t facing charges, but his school in Chamblee closed this summer after the former DeKalb employee who received the bribes, Roderick Wyatt, pleaded guilty.
