Suspended Rockingham Housing Authority Housing Specialist Mildred McSween will face a trial date on four felony counts related to allegedly falsifying evidence on an application for public housing.
The case is related to false information certified by McSween
on the public housing application of an RHA employee, according to arrest warrants.
Two warrants were issued for McSweenâ€™s arrest on June 15.
was taken into custody on that date, and released on a $5,000 bond.
The warrant for fraudulent misrepresentation and one count of felony conspiracy accused McSween
of failing to disclose pertinent information on a housing application, resulting in the several tenants receiving housing assistance in excess of $400.
The warrant for obtaining property by false pretenses and one count of felony conspiracy accuse McSween
of certifying the housing application of an RHA employee when she
knew the information on it was false.
On the day following her
arrest, the RHA
board met and voted unanimously to suspend McSween
without pay after nearly an hour in closed session.
According to records, McSween
received a weekly salary of $558.51 for her
McSweenâ€™s residence is listed on Lakeland Drive in Rockingham on the warrants.
However, the phone number to her
residence is unlisted in the local phone book and online.
RHA Interim Director Jim McCaskill previously confirmed McSween reported directly to former RHA Executive Director Gracie Ingram.
