DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - An appeals court has ruled former SCLC leader Raleigh Trammell was justly convicted and must report to the Montgomery County Jail by 4 p.m. Today.
Trammell sought an appeal for his 2012 convictions for tampering with government records and grand theft.
A jury found him guilty and he was sentenced to 18 months in prison. He was allowed to postpone his sentence during the appeals process.
“Not only did this defendant steal taxpayer money, but he denied meals as promised to elderly and frail citizens. It is now time that he start serving the sentence he earned and deserves from stealing from the most in need. His conduct over many years is shameful,” said Montgomery County Prosecuting Attorney Matt Heck said Friday.
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.
