Ind. Task Force Yields Unemployment Fraud Charges
The state agency's efforts to refine its ability to track fraud came as Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry was pushing an effort to expand the investigation and prosecution of white-collar crime.
"It became apparent the volume was such that we could justify having a full-time person assigned (to unemployment fraud cases)," Curry said, "but we didn't have the funds in our budget to pay for that."
But the state agency did have funding available and a plan was worked out to pair a dedicated prosecutor with 24 workforce department investigators to create the task force.
"It was a perfect trade-off," Curry said.___ Information from: The Indianapolis Star, http://www.indystar.com
