Former housing chief to be sentenced

Michael E. McLaughlin, former executive director of the Chelsea Housing Authority, could face a harsh prison sentence Friday if the judge believes a new allegation that McLaughlin attempted to obstruct a corruption investigation by ordering his personnel records destroyed.

He was already facing the possibility of 12 to 18 months in federal prison under a January plea agreement in which he admitted concealing his inflated $360,000 salary from the state and federal agencies that funded and oversaw the housing authority.
