Former Democratic State Lawmaker Facing Another Indictment

Ohio Public Radio

A former democratic state lawmaker is among those indicted on federal corruption and fraud charges for their dealings with the City of Dayton. 

Ohio Public Radio's Jo Ingles reports.

The indictment says former state Representative Clayton Luckie was part of a scheme to deceive and scam the city of Dayton. Also charged are former Dayton City Commissioner Joey Williams and former Huber Heights Council member and current Dayton City Employee Roshawn Winburn.

The indictment says Luckie formed a company in the summer of 2016 – months after he was released from a three-year prison term for spending campaign money at casinos, at a jewelry store and other places.


This time, Luckie faces wire and mail fraud charges that could, if convicted, land him in jail for a maximum of 40 years.
