The charges came as the result of the raid that took place at the school corporation's central office in June of 2016.

Police say Tanoos accepted bribes from an Indianapolis business.

They say Tanoos also recommended business with the company to the school board.

Lawyers for Tanoos argued Marion County is not the proper venue for these charges.

They also said the charging information was too vague, as they cannot prepare a proper defense.

News 10 confirmed through three sources that the motion has been denied.

The case is still set for a hearing on Wednesday afternoon.
