Hutcherson was indicted last week
on seven counts that include charges of
bank fraud, Social Security fraud and
obstruction of justice.

They stem from questions the
government has about The Mayor's
personal financial dealings and the way
he spent a 30-thousand dollar loan
intended for a non-profit foundation.
