Federal fraud case has forced a doctor, her husband and children to move after a SWAT team raided her office in Florida. According to the news story, the obstetrician and gynecologist is waiting for a verdict in a trial for insurance fraud, but she has already lost much as a result of the raid on her clinic.
Sometimes, familiar faces are arrested by the police for surprising crimes. Take, for example, the rapper 21 Savage, who is now in federal immigration custody over claims that he overstayed his visa and has federal drug charge convictions.
Federal crimes can take place anywhere in the United States and will be tried in a federal court. One example of a federal crime is tampering with the U.S. Postal Service's services or deliveries. It is against the law to impact the postal service negatively in any way, including rerouting mail that doesn't belong to you.
The news recently has been inundated, perhaps more than ever, with stories of professionals committing high level crimes like embezzlement and fraud. These types of crimes do not cause direct injury in the way an armed robbery might, but they are still serious violations of the law.
