A New York City real estate company owner pleaded guilty to paying kickbacks in a scheme to profit from homeless programs, the New York Times reported.

Sheina Levin, the owner of Urban Residences Corp, admitted to bribing Victor Rivera, a former chief executive of the Bronx Parent Housing Network. The scheme lasted from May 2019 to January 2021.

Levin bribed Rivera to lease her company’s property, which would tap into city funding meant to benefit homeless people.
