DescriptionT. Milton Street, a brother of Mayor John F. Street, was indicted Tuesday on tax and fraud charges involving $2 million worth of city contracts.

Starting in 2000, Milton Street began hiring himself out as a highly paid consultant to area businesses who believed he could help them get city business, according to the indictment. Between 2000 and 2004, he received more than $2 million in consulting and other income that was not reported to the IRS, authorities said.

He and two other businessmen face charges of mail and wire fraud, filing false tax returns and related counts.

The mayor was not charged, and his spokesman did not immediately comment.
