Politics

ROCHESTER, NY (WROC) — The former chairman of the Rochester Housing Authority has been indicted on charges related to a fraud case connected to former Rochester City Councilman Adam McFadden.

George Moses is accused of using his position on the authority’s board to funnel thousands of dollars from the authority and Rochester Housing Charities to a company owned by Adam McFadden.

Friday, he appeared in court after being indicted on charges of lying to the FBI. Moses was also charged with wire fraud, money laundering, and conspiracy in the case.

FBI agents say Moses lied to him when they questioned him related to the fraud investigation.

In early April, McFadden pleaded guilty to his role in the case. He faces prison time for the plea.

On Friday, Moses pleaded not guilty to charges.
