Former Benson Housing Director Will Not Spend Time Behind Bars

Posted August 6, 2003

— A former Benson housing director convicted of fraud will pay for the crime with time, but it will not be behind bars.

Juanita English was sentenced to six months of home confinement and ordered to pay $30,000 in restitution.

English ran the town's housing authority from 1993 until 2000, when she resigned.

English admitted she helped a former co-worker file a fake housing application.
