Housing director's trial to get underway next month

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.
