BENTON HARBOR — Benton Harbor school board Trustee Darwin Watson, who is accused of plagiarism, said someone else edited the statements for his political campaign and added in the plagiarized parts.

“What I’m guilty of, and I own it, is trusting somebody else and not having the confidence in my writing skills and second guessing them,” he told The Herald-Palladium on Thursday.
