Ex-Chelsea housing chief to plead guilty to hiding pay

Former Chelsea Housing Authority chief Michael E. McLaughlin has agreed to plead guilty to four federal charges of deliberately concealing his huge salary from state and federal regulators from 2008 until he resigned in 2011, according to an agreement filed in federal court today.

“Defendant expressly and unequivocally admits that he committed the crimes charged in all counts of the information, did so knowingly and intentionally, and is in fact guilty of those offenses,” federal prosecutors said in the document that was signed by both US Attorney Carmen Ortiz, and McLaughlin and his attorney.
