Bond denied for Wilson

July 30, 2007

Albany -- An Albany business woman who just got out of federal prison after a drug conviction will remain in jail awaiting trial on state racketeering and money laundering charges.

At a pre-trial hearing today, a judge denied bond for Dora Wilson.

Prosecutors say from 2002 to 2004 she led a burglary ring and used her profits to set up several businesses.

One of her businesses, Southwest Carting, got a waste disposal contract with the city of Albany.

Former city commissioner Henry Mathis was convicted of trying to extort money from Wilson and is now in federal prison.

State prosecutors waited to proceed with their case until Wilson finished her federal drug sentence.
