CLEVELAND -- Richmond Heights Superintendent Robert Moore and district Building and Grounds Supervisor Richard Muse could face additional charges in a case that accuses them of "shaking down" a local day care operator.

They were in court this morning and both pleaded not guilty.

Both are accused of demanding less than $4,000 in cash from a woman who contracted with the district for her day care operation.

Moore, 52, of Mentor, and Muse, 43, of Cleveland Heights are already facing charges of theft in office, extortion and bribery.

Prosecutors indicated Monday that this case is far from over.

The prosecutor said in court that the alleged victim in this case is also suffering from cancer, and neither man is allowed to contact her in any way.

Moore is on paid administrative leave from the district.
