FILE - In this Dec. 8, 2014 file photo, Leon Dingle Jr., who's accused of diverting more than $3 million in grants for his personal use, enters the Federal Courthouse in Springfield, Ill. Dingle was convicted Wednesday, Dec. 17 on 17 counts of conspiracy, mail fraud and money laundering in stealing $3.4 million out of an $11 million pot of Illinois Department of Public Health grants intended to raise awareness of AIDS, cancer and emergency preparedness in minority communities. In the past three years, U.S. Attorney for the Central District of Illinois James Lewis's office, has dug up enough evidence of stolen taxpayer money to justify prison time for more than a dozen people, But the latest case involving Dingle invited biting, race-based criticism for Lewis by a potential witness who noted that 13 of the 14 people the unit has indicted since 2011 are black.(AP Photo/Seth Perlman,File)
