Charges Unlikely Over Misspending at Illinois Housing Agency

CAIRO, Ill. (AP) — The former director of a southern Illinois housing authority is unlikely to face federal criminal charges for wrongly using agency money on personal expenses. Federal prosecutors have spent several months reviewing the case against James Wilson while he led the housing agency in the city of Cairo. A federal prosecutor says he believes a $500,000 civil settlement Wilson reached last year is “a just resolution to the serious allegations.”
