Fred Hubbard

Handcuffed former Chicago Ald. Fred Hubbard peers out of his window as he is being driven to prison on Sept. 7, 1972. Hubbard pleaded guilty to embezzling nearly $100,000 from a federally funded jobs program he had headed. Later, Hubbard used a false name, Andrew Thomas, to land a job as a substitute teacher in the Chicago Public Schools. The ruse was discovered in 1986, when Hubbard, then 57, was accused of propositioning a 13-year-old girl at a grade school
