Charges Dismissed Against Milwaukee Ald. Donovan
MilwaukeeChannel.com has the report
Earlier this year, Alderman Bob Donovan pleaded not guilty to charges that he failed to disclose financial ties to a nonprofit group.
The nonprofit group Donovan founded is called Milwaukee Alliance and the U.S. attorney in Milwaukee said Donovan was initially charged with defrauding the Department of Housing and Urban Development by concealing the fact that his wife had received funds from the non-profit agency.
Under the new agreement, the criminal charges are dropped, but Donovan has agreed the Milwaukee Alliance should go out of business.
In addition, Donovan will have to pay a $2,500 fine and the Milwaukee alderman is forbidden from involvement with non-profit agencies for two years.
