"Fraud crackdown  By Ashley Kelly and Peter Dujardin

The Eastern Virginia District of the United States Attorney's Office had hired two people to crack down on financial fraud and public corruption.

The U.S, Attorney's Office is expanding its fraud unit by hiring fraud prosecutors and increasing its ability to prosecute financial fraud, including securities fraud and mortgage fraud.  The office says the potential for fraud also is high as a result of billions in federal spending being directed at recovery efforts.

The number of public corruption cases handled by the Eastern Virginia District has increased from 11 in 2005 to 21 in 2009.

Charles Connolly was named chief of the fraud unit.  An assistant U.S. attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia since 2002.  Connolly has served as the office's corporate fraud and health care fraud coordinator.

Mark Lytle was named district wide public integrity coordinator.  His job will be to expand the office's ability to investigate and prosecute potential corruption by federal, state and local officials.

Lytle has served as an assistant U.S. attorney in the office since 2004 and recently concluded the conviction of former Congressman William J. Jefferson on bribery, racketeering, and money laundering charges , according to a news release."
