Mille Lacs Academy Executive Director Paul L. Smith was "on the docket" for Monday, July 13, 2009 in Federal Court in Oklahoma City. However, his trial has been continued (rescheduled) until October 13, 2009. Smith has been indicted on several counts of embezzlement and mail fraud, crimes he allegedly committed prior to joining the "Nexus family" while he was the director of a youth detention center in Lawton, Oklahoma. Despite the serious charges, Nexus reportedly stands behind their indicted director and Smith has not stepped down from his position as the Mille Lacs Academy man in charge.
