The home of a former Cicero mayor convicted of fraud has sold as the government attempts to recoup some of the money she owes.
The home of Betty Loren-Maltese was auctioned Thursday for $87,000.
Loren-Maltese, who watched the auction, told the Chicago Sun-Times the son of a neighbor bought the three-bedroom property.
Loren-Maltese served 6½ years in prison for fleecing taxpayers of more than $12 million in a mob-related insurance scam. She's been released from prison. She says she's innocent and has appealed the conviction. She now lives in an apartment in Palos Hills.
