ROCHESTER, N.Y. — The former head of the Rochester Housing Authority will spend six and a half years in prison for stealing tens of thousands of dollars from local non-profits.

That’s the sentence a federal judge gave George Moses on Tuesday. Moses was convicted last year on 28 counts of wire and mail fraud, money laundering, theft, and lying on tax forms.

He stole from non-profits that he ran, including the housing authority charities and a neighborhood group. Officials say he used the money for personal expenses.
