DAYTON, Ohio -- A Montgomery County grand jury has indicted former Southern Christian Leadership Conference President Raleigh Trammell on more than 50 counts, including theft and forgery.
Trammell, 74, was indicted on one count of grand theft, 25 counts of forgery and 25 counts of tampering with government records.
The grand theft charge against Trammell is in regards to the meal delivery program that he allegedly ran with Job and Family Services. The charge states that the meals were never delivered and that Trammell kept the money.
The forgery charge stems from invoices that he signed. The tampering with government records charge alleges that Trammell signed off on paperwork that he would deliver the meals.
While leading the Dayton SCLC chapter, the organization lost all public funding following allegations of federal, state and taxpayer money being misspent.
Last February, agents with the FBI raided the Dayton SCLC headquarters and Trammell's home, along with the home of his daughter, Angela. She ran some of the SCLC programs. The SCLC lost more than $400,000 in public funding in 2010.
According to our partners at the Dayton Daily News, Trammell also was accused of sexual harassment by a Dayton SCLC employee, DaMisha Douglas, who filed a lawsuit in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court in August. The case is pending and a jury trial is scheduled for September. In June, the Ohio Civil Rights Commission found probable cause that the SCLC allowed discrimination against Douglas.
In 2010, Trammell lost his positions with the local and national levels of the SCLC after a disagreement of allegations that he and former SCLC national treasurer Spiver Gordon had misappropriated at least $569,000 in national funds, according to Dayton Daily News. The FBI is now investigating.
Trammell is expected to turn himself in within the hour.

Too bad that these gutless nutless witless bitchin' media-'ho prosecutors and politicians did not expose and stop him a few hundred-thousand dollars or so, like ya know. Now, we ration our compations and hateful donations because we no longer trust any of the many of them much.

The story on the DDN says that the individual in charge of the SCLC says that Trammell did do good in Dayton and he shouldn't be judged.

So could someone tell me what he did that was so good??

Enjoy prison Trammell...it was a long time coming but well deserved!!!

Happy New Year Dewdrop, long time no see.

I totally agree with your post. One of the few times it happened. They are having a field day with his mugshot on Facebook. Jill Del Greco posted it and they are up to 40 comments in just a half hour. brahahahahahaha!!!!

Hell, even the African Americans CAN'T STAND HIM EITHER! That's very telling when the "bro network" doesn't back him.

Not only was he corrupt, but over the years, Trammell led the charge with the other black ministers to City Hall and was key in getting a lot of innocent Dayton Police Officers reprimanded, suspended, and fired.

Are you sure those officers hands were clean? Look at some of the crap that has been pulled by DPD.
Give me a list of names, and we can judge on a case by case basis. Fair enough?

She works for Strauss & Troy.
A criminal defense firm in Cincinnati.

Guess Trammell couldn't get a Dayton attorney to represent him...they all know he's guilty.

Though I'm shocked he didn't get Rion. Interesting.
