BOSTON (CBS) – The former director of the Chelsea Housing Authority will plead guilty to charges that he falsely reported his salary.
Investigators alleged that in 2011, 67-year-old Michael McLaughlin reported that his annual salary was $160,000 when he knew his actual salary was at least $283,000.
