LUBBOCK, Texas -

Lubbock grand jurors have indicted a former candidate for the Lubbock ISD Board of Trustees. 

Amanda Banks is indicted on a charge of insurance fraud between $2,500 and $30,000.

She was running for the at-large trustee position. She was arrested earlier this month, during early voting, on the charge. Court documents show she staged a break-in at her home in August 2016, reportedly spray-painting racial slurs and damaging her own property. She then claimed it as a burglary to the police.

She has since bonded out of jail. Beth Bridges won the trustee position with 44% of the vote. Banks drew 28%.
