The daughter of President Barack Obama's former pastor has been indicted on charges of money laundering and lying to the feds.

Jeri Wright of Hazel Crest is Reverend Jeremiah Wright's daughter. She is accused of participating in a fraud scheme allegedly orchestrated by former Country Club Hills police chief Regina Evans and her husband.
