Warned away by a letter from the police chief that later was called a mistake, newly elected Dixmoor Mayor Rev. Donald C. Luster did not attend what would have been his first Village Board meeting and a showdown of sorts Wednesday night.
Instead, he called a news conference for Thursday morning at Village Hall. "We have received internal correspondence stating that if Mr. Luster or his supporters were to attend the meeting, they would not be allowed on public property, and out of concern for the residents we knew would be here, we did not want to cause some kind of confrontation," Evangeline Levison, Luster's attorney, said outside the meeting. Luster pleaded guilty to robbery in 1991 and served probation. Luster said he is officially mayor because his election on April 3 was certified by a Cook County judge and he was sworn in late last week. "Donald Luster is not the mayor of Dixmoor. "[Luster] doesn't have the right to fire me. And he if he does, I will see him in court." Richard Devine took the unprecedented step of filing a lawsuit to oust Luster under the state law. Also appearing Wednesday night outside the meeting was Geri Moklak, Luster's former landlord in Park Forest, who has filed a complaint in Cook County Circuit Court seeking more than $5,000 in back rent and damages from Luster. Her assertion that Luster lived in Park Forest until June 30 raises anew the question of whether he met Dixmoor's requirement that a candidate live in the village for a year before filing an election petition. The pastor of True Vine Church, where Luster is associate pastor, showed his support at Wednesday's meeting.

(AP) Former Dixmoor Mayor Donald Luster was sentenced Monday to two years of probation for illegally collecting unemployment benefits and failing to file state income tax returns.Luster, 41, was convicted of fraud last month for not filing state returns in 1999 and 2000, while records show he earned $43,443 and $34,402, respectively.He also was found guilty of fraudulently collecting $2,500 in state unemployment benefits.Luster, who was mayor of this south suburban Chicago village for three years, had faced up to five years in jail for the convictions.Cook County Judge Bertina Lampkin also sentenced Luster to 120 hours of community service and ordered him to pay $445 in fines and court costs, according to Melissa Merz, a spokeswoman for Attorney General Lisa Madigan.Luster's attorney had argued at trial that Luster did not willfully and knowingly break the law.Luster was elected mayor of Dixmoor by one vote in April 2001.He took office a month later after a judge ruled that he could serve despite felony convictions for robbery and battery, and another judge dismissed a request for a full recount.(Copyright 2004 by The Associated Press.All Rights Reserved.)
