Jeri Wright, daughter of President Obama’s ex-pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, was convicted on Friday of money laundering from a $1.25 million state grant for a Chicago-are job-training program. A federal jury took less than two hours to find Jeri Wright guilty on all counts for her part in the fraud scheme led by the ex-police chief for Country Club Hills and her husband.
Jeri Wright was also convicted of making false statements to law enforcement officers, giving false testimony to a grand jury. She faces up to 20 years in prison for money laundering and five years in prison on the other counts. Her sentencing is scheduled for July 7.
