Ex-Affiliated CEO pleads

Posted By on Thu, Feb 18, 2010 at 4:53 PM

John Mills, 59, of Cabot waived indictment in federal court today and pleaded guilty to aiding bank fraud by a check kiting scheme devised to cover up financial problems at the now-defunct Affiliated Foods. Mills was CEO of the once giant and prosperous grocery wholesaler. Sentencing will be later.

U.S. Attorney Jane Duke outlines the charge here. The news release identifies another employee who worked with Mills in the scheme. There is no mention of charges in addition to that filed against Mills. Asked about that, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney said, "The investigation is ongoing."

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
