MESQUITE - A Mesquite middle school is still reeling this morning after learning a teacher's aide lied about having cancer all while happily accepting cash for his treatment.

Students and teachers at Wilkinson Middle School surprised first year aide, Kevin Mabone, with a car and a $1,000 in cash last Friday.

By Monday though, teachers learned Mabone did not have cancer and is actually facing sentencing for fraud in West Virginia.

A federal judge has since ordered a new investigation into Mabone.
