ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — A federal jury has found the former head of Rochester's Housing Authority guilty.

His trial started back on Oct. 18.

George Moses was accused of money laundering, bribery, wire fraud, theft and lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Federal prosecutors say he used public funds like a personal piggy bank, spending the money on cruises, spa treatments, tickets to sporting events and more.

Tuesday Moses was convicted on 28 of 29 charges. Three of the charges against him were dropped with prejudice on Nov. 19, meaning those charges can not be levied against him for the same alleged crimes again.

Co-defendants Adam McFadden and Janis White previously pleaded guilty for their involvement in the scheme.
