None of these cases are related, but they are interesting.  The State often releases these indictments in groups and the dollar amounts are usually higher.  These cases have some very low dollar amounts.  Based upon my practice, I guess that these people made no attempt to resolve these matters before indictment.  If you get a notice that you are being investigated, you should call an attorney right away.  Call me anytime to discuss.

TRENTON – Attorney General Anne Milgram announced today that eight people have been charged with cheating the State of New Jersey’s unemployment fund out of a total of $100,487.   The charges resulted from cooperative investigations by the Department of Labor and Workforce Development and the Division of Criminal Justice Major Crimes Bureau.
