13645_crime Former Dallas Housing Manager Indicted On Abusing Authority A former department manager of the Dallas Housing Authority has been indicted by a grand jury for using her office to secure subsidized housing for her niece.

The Dallas Morning News reports that Suanne Spires Durham, the former department manager for the city's Comprehensive Homeless Services, readjusted the program's eligibility criteria to enable her nice to receive subsidized housing.
