Coming Trials in $2.5 million Fraud

Even though several defendants pleaded guilty to fraud in the multistate federal case involving a scheme to defraud a program that helps the deaf, more than a dozen defendants are headed to trial. That includes the president of Maryland's services company Viable, John T.C. Yeh and his brother who was vice president of corporate strategy Joseph Yeh. They go to trial May 24 in New Jersey on charges of conspiracy to defraud the government and other crimes.

A former assistant vice president of business development for Viable and a former Viable human resources manager pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail fraud in January. They will face sentencing in June. Last month, the co-owners of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Interpreting Services pleaded guilty. A look at those who pleaded gulity last week is here.
