Housing adviser faces 41 counts in bribery fraud case 

Prosecutors are charging an outreach coordinator for allegedly soliciting bribes of more than $1,000 from at least 19 people to help find low-income housing.

Kan Yin Chow, 51, was taken to County Jail on Wednesday on 41 charges, according to Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Susan Fahey.
Chow was responsible for reaching out to members of the Chinese community and helping them apply for below market rate homes offered by the Redevelopment Agency.

Home Bricks fired Chow in October after it learned of the allegations when a woman who claimed she was asked for the additional fee contacted the Redevelopment Agency.

District Attorney Kamala Harris is holding a news conference today to announce the charges.
