“Not only did this defendant steal taxpayer money, but he denied meals as promised to elderly and frail citizens.

The former leader of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference was accused of keeping $38,000 of tax-payer money, intended to fund a home-delivered meal program between 2005 and 2010.
