MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - A federal judge ruled Friday that the case against cousins 31-year-old Born King and 27-year-old Fahiym Hussain Pearson be turned over to a grand jury.
Others charged in the case are 32-year-old Robert Leo Kelly and
John Edward Frost. A fifth defendant, Stephen Lewis Raney, has not
yet been caught by authorities.
Authorities say King and Pearson would recruit from homeless
shelters, buy the recruits new clothing and send them to banks to
cash checks altered with a typewriter.
The companies include Treasure Bay Hotel & Casino in Gulfport,
Miss., and All South Vinyl and Siding in Robertsdale, Ala.
