A Nevada homebuilder was sentenced today to more than four years in prison for embezzling from a federal housing grant program that was used to build affordable housing for a Navajo community near Chilchinbeto, Ariz., U.S. Attorney Daniel Bogden announced.
William Aubrey, 71, of Mesquite, was convicted by a jury in May of two counts of taking and converting money and funds belonging to a tribal organization. Aubrey allegedly used money taken from the grant program to pay for his own gambling debts and other personal expenses.
A hearing to decide the amount of restitution Aubrey owes is scheduled for Oct. 15.
Aubrey must report to a federal prison on Jan. 3.
