Federal prosecutors arrested the owners of two Georgia-based telemedicine companies on Feb. 4th on charges of conspiracy ranging from fraud to money laundering. Reinaldo Wilson, 51, and his wife, Jean Wilson, 49, allegedly led a scheme to receive kickbacks and bribes for ordering orthodontic braces through Medicare for people who didn’t need them. The indictment indicates the plan operated between March 2017 and April 2019.
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has cited a steel packaging supplier for allegedly exposing its workers to amputation, chemical and other safety hazards at a job site in Lavonia, Georgia.
The bill was partially inspired by the case of Andrew Clyde. In April 2013, Clyde’s gun shop in Athens, Georgia, was doing amazing business. In response to fear that the Obama administration may limit access to firearms, Clyde’s store, Clyde Armory, was virtually empty.
In January, Bob Coleman, age 69, a county commissioner for Glynn County, Georgia, was arrested together with his wife Sherry, age 59, after a yearlong investigation into their business practices. The couple together ran Coleman Insurance, and Bob Coleman was a respected member of the community. He was elected to the Glynn County Commission three times, and the couple has lived in the area for their whole lives.
On the morning of January 22, 2018, Anthony Gambino was driving on I-95 just south of Dock Junction, Georgia heading towards Florida when he was pulled over for speeding. According to court documents, when Camden County Sheriff’s Deputy Jim Kelly spoke to Gambino, Gambino “appeared nervous, fidgety, apologetic, and talkative.”
Gambino showed Deputy Kelly his New York drivers’ license, a license which Kelly verified had been suspended. Kelly let Gambino know that, since he was driving on a suspended license, he would be taken to county jail. Gambino let Deputy Kelly know he had a duffel back containing $55,000 with him in the car. Once Gambino was locked in the back of the police car, Deputy Kelly called for backup.
