Former Dallas Mayor Pro Tem and others guilty in housing tax credit case

The Dallas Morning News reports the federal district court jury found all of the defendants in the Dallas Low Income Housing Tax Credit corruption scandal guilty.

  • Hill was found guilty on seven charges, including bribery and conspiracy to commit bribery.
  • D’Angelo Lee, Hill’s appointee to the Dallas Plan Commission, was guilty on seven counts.
  • Sheila Farrington, Hill’s wife, was guilty on five counts.
  • Rickey Robertson, a car dealer, was found guilty on two counts.
  • Darren Reagan, of the Black State Employees Association of Texas, was guilty of conspiracy to commit extortion and aiding and abetting extortion.

I started my commitment to housing justice for people and communities with low incomes in 1975 in Austin's Clarksville community. These years of working side-by-side with dedicated community leaders to find solutions to housing and community development challenges have taught me some things and I’m learning new things every day.
