NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Federal court records show a 'change of plea' hearing has been scheduled for the former director of a non-profit housing agency in New Orleans who was indicted last year on corruption charges.

Stacey Jackson's hearing is set for 10 a.m. Wednesday.

Jackson is the former director of New Orleans Affordable Housing. Her 2013 indictment charged her with taking kickbacks from contractors. She pleaded not guilty after the indictment, which included charges of conspiracy, obstruction of justice and 'soliciting or accepting a bribe.'

Jackson's attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment Tuesday.

The housing agency was supposed to provide federally-financed house-gutting services after Hurricane Katrina but news reports in 2008 showed that the work was never completed.
