The daughter of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, President Obama’s controversial former pastor, has been accused of laundering money in an alleged $1.25 million fraud led by an ex-police chief in Illinois.

Jeri L. Wright, 47, was indicted by a federal grand jury Wednesday for allegedly accepting $28,000 from former police chief Regina Evans and her husband, ex-police officer Ronald Evans, for Wright’s supposed work related to the Evanses’ not-for-profit program called We Are Our Brother’s Keeper. Approximately $20,000 of that money, however, found its way back into bank accounts controlled by the Evanses, prosecutors said.
