DETROIT (WXYZ) - The 7 Action News Investigators have learned that Highland Park School Board member Robert Davis is expected to be charged with tax evasion, according to his attorney.
Davis was indicted by a federal grand jury earlier this year for allegedly stealing money from the strapped school district.
His attorney Carl Marlinga tells 7 Action News that he spoke with the US Attorney's office and was told his client faces additional charges.
"They say we should expect tax evasion charges soon, if not later today," says Marlinga.
Davis is known for suing local leaders for allegedly violating the Open Meetings Act in connection with the emergency manager law.
He most recently sued Governor Rick Synder and others in an attempt to stop the state from taking over Detroit's finances and for placing an emergency manager over Highland Park schools, but was unsuccessful.
