Former Levelland housing agency head pleads guilty to federal embezzlement charge

LEVELLAND — The former director of the Levelland Housing Authority pleaded guilty this week to a federal embezzlement charge.

Cecilia Chavez faces a punishment of up to 10 years in prison, a $250,000 fine and restitution payments after pleading guilty to a federal felony count of theft of government funds of more than $1,000, admitting to embezzling about $39,000 from the Levelland Housing Authority over five years using its credit card.

Court documents state she had been the housing authority’s executive director since February 2007.

However, agents learned through their investigation that Chavez spent $39,000 of housing authority funds for her own benefit from January 2011 to June 2017.
