The Yancey County Sheriffs Department, in conjunction with the district attorney’s office has issued felony warrants for the owner of a language program that booked a trip for some Mountain Heritage High School students and their chaperons to Guatemala. Robert Sudy, co-owner of the International Language Center based in Michigan, will be extradited to North Carolina to face charges in the incident which left 14 students and five chaperons holding the bag on a $26,000 tab for the trip which would allow them to study Spanish and the culture in the Central American country. Authorities in Michigan have not yet arrested Sudy who has sent an email to the Spanish teacher at Mountain Heritage attempting to explain away the missing money as a case of misappropriated funds, cancellations and a loss of an investor. He even went as far as to say that he was looking for a job so that he could repay the money. School Board attorney Donnie Laws said that there are other schools and groups around the country that have found themselves in a similar situation and that this case could get complicated.
