FORMER CITY EMPLOYEE PLEADS GUILTY TO HOUSING FRAUD

 FORMER CITY EMPLOYEE PLEADS GUILTY TO HOUSING FRAUD
 SAN FRANCISCO, June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- A recipient of lower-income rental assistance provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), pleaded guilty in the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, on Monday, to charges of failing to report her true income.
 Pamelia R. Ethridge, age 40, a former clerk for the Los Angeles Police Department, was arrested by Federal agents last month, subsequent to an indictment alleging that she benefitted from overpayments of $15,384 in rental assistance, to which she was not entitled. If convicted, Ethridge faces a maximum fine of $10,000 and imprisonment up to five years.
 Agents of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Office of Inspector General, are actively working with the U.S. Attorney in Los Angeles on the arrest and conviction of individuals who defraud HUD's rental assistance program.
