Ex-Civil Rights Leader Going Up The Creek!
Raleigh Trammell, the former head of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference was found guilty over the past week for fraud. He was responsible for helping feed the poor with meals.
Instead of taking on the principles of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Trammell used his leadership role as a lavish panderer of things that landed him in trouble.
The Montgomery County Common Pleas Court of Ohio, delivered the verdict.
According to WHIO-TV, official accused of stealing taxpayer money intended to help the poor, was convicted Friday on all 51 counts against him in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court.
Sentencing was set for June 27. The trial judge did not revoke Trammell's bond, so he will remain free until the sentencing hearing.
Trammell, 74, faced 51 felony counts stemming from the alleged thefts, all from a home-delivered meals service run from the SCLC Dayton chapter’s headquarters.
Some ex-aides accuse Trammell of spending taxpayer funding on sex and for his family's expenses.
Trammell could be spending the rest of his life in prison, when he is sentenced in late June.
