City Council Member Accused of Mismanaging Inheritance

Classic carDetroit city council member, George Cushingberry Jr. is being accused of mishandling Roxanne Hudson’s inheritance. Specifically, Hudson is accusing Cushingberry of cheating her out of two classic vehicles a 1926 Oakland and a 1976 Coupe De Ville. Hudson has filed a lawsuit, which indicates that her husband died two years earlier intestate. Further, the lawsuit explained that Cushingberry said he would take care of the funeral and medical expenses and assist her with some legal help, but Hudson says that never happened. She claims that Cushingberry took her husband's cars and sold them without giving her any of the cash received. Todd Perkins, Cushingberry's attorney said that the council member would soon be vindicated.
