LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The former director of Louisville's Housing and Family Services Department is expected in court Monday.

Kimberly Bunton was indicted on charges of misusing low-income housing funds by awarding assistance to her mother, Vickie Smallwood. Both are facing charges of two counts of theft by unlawful taking of more than $300.

Bunton resigned in 2008 and wrote the city a check for nearly $1900.

If convicted the women could serve up to five years in prison and be ordered to pay fines.
