OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — A jury has convicted the heads of a former Alameda County agency accused of misusing hundreds of thousands of dollars in federal funds to help low-income residents, youth and parolees.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Nanette Dillard and her husband, Paul Daniels, were convicted this week of grand theft and other felonies for their mishandling of a federal grant.

Jurors concluded that Dillard, who headed the Associated Community Action Program, and Daniels, the program's former grants administrator, stole grant funding and gave a false accounting to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Daniels was also convicted of falsifying a memo in connection with the program that was forced to shut down.

Jurors also acquitted the couple of conspiring to defraud the government and using the money for personal profit.

The couple faces sentencing on April 18.
