(COLUMBUS, Ohio) - Attorney General Mike DeWine said today that six members of a multi-state telemarketing operation pleaded guilty this week to felonies. Four others pleaded guilty earlier this year. They are among 18 who, according to an indictment in June, operated a criminal enterprise that stole millions of dollars from victims who owned inexpensive, vacant land throughout the U.S.
"We are making progress in this major case that often ended up with senior citizens being the prime victims," said Attorney General DeWine. "We will continue to work with Miami County authorities to prepare the remaining cases for trial."
