(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Ross, who is the chief of the Fraud and Corruption Section in the Western District of New York, Buffalo Office, said the U.S. Attorney’s Office took its time to conduct a full and thorough investigation to “fulfill our obligation” before filing any charges. 

“We developed the tax fraud case and sured up the wire fraud case,” she said, noting the FBI was helpful in the cause.

Ross noted that given the amount of money in question the time it took for the case to see a court room was relatively short.

“Most cases concerning a period of time this long and an amount this large normally take about two to two and a half years,” she said.
