MONROE, La. (AP) - U.S. Attorney Stephanie Finley says a 51-year-old West Monroe has been sentenced to 18 months in prison for using a federal grant for the homeless to house himself and his family.
She says Donald Gregory "Greg" Miller also was ordered to repay $130,300 to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and will be on supervised probation for three years.
Miller was president of a Rayville religious nonprofit organization called Our Fathers Arms. Finley says that from 2003 to 2008, he got HUD grants to house and help homeless people in Northeast Louisiana. Finley says a federal investigation revealed that Miller used some of that money for his and his family's personal and living expenses.
