The daughter of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, President Obama's controversial former pastor, has been accused of laundering money in an alleged $1.25 million fraud led by an ex-police chief in Illinois.
Jeri L. Wright, 47, was indicted by a federal grand jury Wednesday for allegedly accepting $28,000 from former police chief Regina Evans and her husband, ex-police officer Ronald Evans, for Wright's supposed work related to the Evanses' not-for-profit program called We Are Our Brother's Keeper. Approximately $20,000 of that money, however, found its way back into bank accounts controlled by the Evanses, prosecutors said.
According to a release from the Department of Justice, Wright was playing a part in a scheme by the Evanses to misuse a $1.25 million state grant that had been awarded to the not-for-profit program in 2009.
We Are Our Brother's Keeper was supposed to spend the money on training up to 40 participants in bricklaying and electrical work at a Regal Theater also owned by the Evanses, but the indictment alleges that "little, if any, of the training provided in the grant agreement was ever completed."
