GREENVILLE — A Sept. 26 trial date has been set for the director of the South Delta Regional Housing Authority and a contractor in a federal criminal case, according to The Delta Democrat-Times.
Ann Jefferson, who is on administrative leave as the authority’s executive director, and Jimmy Johnson, a contractor who worked with the housing authority, are scheduled for trial before U.S. Senior Judge Glen H. Davidson in Oxford.
However, Johnson and Jefferson have the right to ask for a delay.
Jefferson had been scheduled for trial at the end of August on three counts of intimidating witnesses in a federal investigation. Earlier this month, she was charged with five new counts, including embezzling federal money. Johnson also was charged with embezzlement, among other charges.
Both have pleaded not guilty.
