$1 million COVID fraud case in Mobile part of nationwide rise in federal corruption cases
By John Sharp

The recent federal charges against a half-dozen people in an alleged $1 million fraud scheme involving COVID relief funds are part of an increase in corruption prosecutions in the United States within the past six months, a Syracuse University analysis reports. The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Alabama is credited with having the third most federal corruption prosecutions on a per capita basis during the first six months of fiscal year 2021 starting on October 1, according to an report from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University. Only federal courthouses in Washington, D.C., and the East District of Louisiana ranked higher.
