More Info on Rebecca Hauck’s Arrest

2006-04-04 11:45
Jeff Testerman over at The St. Petersburg Times wrote an excellent article about Rebecca Hauck’s arrest and the continuing search for Matthew B. Cox. From Testerman’s article, titled Bonnie and Clyde with a new twist:

Hauck, 34, a former legal secretary who left behind a young son to join Cox, was arrested by the U.S. Secret Service last week in Houston. She awaits transfer to Atlanta for arraignment on a 42-count federal indictment that could subject her to more than 400 years in prison on charges of conspiracy, wire fraud, bank fraud, money laundering and use of stolen identities. …

… In Atlanta, U.S. government prosecutors hope Hauck will provide clues to Cox’s whereabouts. “Sentencing provisions provide for the possibility of leniency for cooperation,” said Gale McKenzie, an assistant U.S. attorney in Atlanta. “We would still very much like to know where Mr. Cox is.” …

… In Atlanta, Cox and Hauck established headquarters and adopted new identities for a new round of fraudulent loans, the indictments say. Cox stole the identity of Gerald Scott Cugno, a Tampa mortgage broker who had worked with Cox for several years. Hauck took the name of Michielle V. Joseph, a former in-law, before becoming Grace E. Hudson, who checked in to an Atlanta plastic surgery center for a $12,000 facelift to change her appearance, authorities said. …

… Officials were keeping mum this week about whether Cox and Hauck were still working together when she was arrested in Houston.
