STATE BRIEFS

Deadline approaches for marathon fund

Sentencing delayed
for housing director

The Boston Globe reports prosecutors brought up a new allegation that McLaughlin might have ordered an employee to destroy time cards related to his pay. The judge set a July 17 hearing on that.

McLaughlin admitted under-reporting his salary in annual housing authority budgets from 2008 to 2011 and submitting the false figures to state and federal regulators.

He resigned in 2011 under pressure from Gov. Deval Patrick after the Globe reported his annual salary was $360,000.

His case sparked a call for statewide reform of Massachusetts housing authorities.
