"Economic crimes steal from everyone's wallets," said District Attorney Hoovler, "and the loss doesn't affect just Orange County. An economic crime committed here has statewide implications through the loss of revenue to the state's coffers. In conjunction with our previously announced efforts together with other county officials to combat welfare fraud, the CARP grant will allow my office to expand its efforts to fight economic crime, halting the drain on county funds and providing additional revenue to the county through a percentage of the tax dollars that we recover on behalf of the state."
"Accidental fires will typically come from the engine or something electrical, whereas intentional fire generally has some financial motive which impacts all of us" said Richard Angel, director of special investigations for Infinity Insurance
"The charges state Lenhart prescribed 'touching therapy' for the women, which included touching and holding the patients. The therapy allegedly included stroking, sexual contact and rubbing of genitals" according to a news release from state Attorney General Kathleen Kane
"These people are renegades," Sheriff Mike Scott said. "Whether they're lowballing tree trimming jobs or just plain doing shoddy work, they give a bad name to all the licensed legitimate contractors out there. We will continue to do operations like this to weed out the bad apples."
