The trial of retired Capistrano Unified School District Supt. James Fleming and a former assistant on felony charges stemming from an "enemies" list of district critics they allegedly compiled will begin Oct. 29, a judge ruled Friday.
Fleming, 64, is accused of misappropriating public funds and conspiracy, while Susan McGill, also 64, former assistant superintendent of administrative services, is charged with perjury and conspiracy.
Both have pleaded not guilty to the charges.
If convicted, Fleming could face up to four years in state prison and McGill up to five years.
