Inglewood mayor might face charges

Roosevelt Dorn is expected to be charged in connection with a low-income housing loan he reportedly received from the city of Inglewood, according to the Los Angeles Wave and contributing editor Betty Pleasant. "I received word Tuesday evening from an inside, confidential source that the district attorney was going to file criminal charges" today, the paper reported.

The D.A.ís office confirmed in December that it was investigating Dorn and Inglewood City Treasurer Wanda Brown for borrowing hundreds of thousands of dollars through a low-interest loan program established in 1992 for city administrators.
