Charges filed in Florida heiress fraud case

Authorities have charged a 52-year-old woman and a 45-year-old man with swindling the heiress to the Wrigley chewing gum fortune out of almost $500,000. The arrests come after a yearlong investigation by the Florida Attorney General's Office and Department of Law Enforcement. Reports indicate that the pair worked as a housekeeper and ranch hand at the heiress's Pasco County estate and allegedly began to siphon money from her accounts after being promoted to the positions of bookkeeper and ranch manager.

Landmark drug charges filed in fentanyl case

A 22-year-old Florida man has been charged with distributing fentanyl resulting in death. A Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office representative said that the man is the first county resident federally indicted for this crime. He is alleged to have sold the drugs that caused a man to overdose fatally in May 2017. Reports indicate that the man is being held without bond and faces a mandatory life sentence in a federal prison.

Points about victim cooperation in domestic violence cases

Many different factors may be involved in a domestic violence charge. In some cases, the prosecution is relying on statements made by the alleged victim. This means that your family member could have to testify against you, in some circumstances, e.g., if the alleged victim decides to stop cooperating. This is a precarious position.

Man facing drug charges allegedly claimed to be federal agent

A 31-year-old Florida man was taken into custody on May 30 on drug possession charges after allegedly claiming to be a federal agent according to a report from the Lake County Sheriff's Office. Deputies say that the man told them that he was working undercover when a records check revealed that he was driving on a revoked license. He is also said to have admitted to concealing several items on his person. Deputies assigned to the office's street crimes unit say that the man then produced $900 in cash and 31 packages of heroin.
