Someone’s Chickens Just Came Home to Roost … Jeri Wright, The Daughter of Rev. Jeremiah Wright Found Guilty of Money Laundering
Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s daughters chickens appear to have come home to roost …
Jeri Wright, the daughter of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, President Barack Obama’s former controversial minister, was found guilty on Friday and convicted of money laundering. Jeri Wright was found guilty of 11 counts that included money laundering from a Chicago-based jobs program, ‘We Are Our Brother’s Keepers’, lying to federal agents and lying to a grand jury. As reported at Breitbart, Prosecutor Timothy Bass said Jeri Wright lied “over and over” and went on a “spending spree” that included traveling to Las Vegas, buying vehicles, and remodeling her basement with cash from the money laundering scheme. The jury took less than 2 hours to return the guilty verdict on all charges. Of course, she said following the verdict that she did nothing wrong and plans to appeal.
There was no comment from Rev. Wright as to whether the white people on the jury were liars.
The daughter of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, President Barack Obama’s former minister, was convicted by a federal jury Friday of laundering thousands of dollars from a $1.25 million state grant for a Chicago-based job-training program.
Jeri Wright said she would “definitely” appeal the verdict in U.S. District Court, which found her guilty of 11 counts that included money laundering, lying to federal agents and lying to a grand jury.
The $1.25 million state grant was for a not-for-profit work and education program called We Are Our Brother’s Keeper, owned by Regina Evans, former police chief of Country Club Hills, and her husband, Ronald Evans Jr. The couple has pleaded guilty to the fraud scheme.
Wright, a close friend of the couple, took as much as $11,000 from checks worth more than $30,000 that were supposed to be for work related to the grant, prosecutors said. About $20,000 was deposited back into accounts controlled by Regina and Ronald Evans.
The grant agreement was supposed to provide bricklaying and electrical pre-apprenticeship training and GED preparation at the Regal Theater, another entity owned by the couple. Little, if any, of the training provided in the grant agreement was ever completed, according to prosecutors.
