Delta housing director’s trial moved to August
Published: May 16,2011
GREENVILLE — The trial of the director of a housing organization on charges of intimidating witnesses in a federal investigation has been rescheduled to Aug. 29 in federal court in Oxford.
The Delta Democrat Times reports the trial for South Delta Regional Housing Authority director Ann Jefferson was rescheduled from May 23 at the request of her attorney.
Jefferson has pleaded not guilty.
An indictment alleges Jefferson retaliated against two employees and a woman who bought a house from SDRHA after she found out the individuals had been cooperating with federal investigators looking into alleged crimes committed by Jefferson and others. The court records did not say what the alleged crimes were.
SDRHA operates in Bolivar, Humphreys, Sunflower, Issaquena, Sharkey and Washington counties.
