On November 2, 2016, former Boston Housing Authority (BHA) employee Alfred G. Davis pleaded guilty to two counts of larceny over $250, one count of forgery and one count of uttering. Davis was sentenced to one year probation by Judge Rosalind Miller and ordered to pay $12,500 in restitution: $7,5000 to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and $5,000 to the Sunshine Lady Foundation.
This case against Davis stemmed from a joint investigation conducted by the Massachusetts Office of the Inspector General, the Boston Police Department’s Anti-Corruption Division, and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Office of the Inspector General. The Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office prosecuted the case. The investigation found that Davis had used the siphoned philanthropic funds to pay for personal expenses, including expenses while traveling to Las Vegas, New Orleans, and Barbados; a mattress; and collectible coins.
