Arrest in $1.9 billion corporate fraud case


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The U.S. marshals office says an Ohio
woman has been arrested on charges that she impeded the
government's search for her fugitive sister in a $1.9 billion
corporate fraud case.
Authorities say 66-year-old Linda Case was arrested Friday
morning at her home in Grove City outside Columbus on charges of
obstruction of justice and making false statements.
Investigators say Case knew the whereabouts of sister Rebecca
Parrett and provided her support and lied about it to federal
officers.
Parrett was sentenced in absentia in March 2009 to 25 years in
prison on 13 counts of securities fraud, wire fraud and money
laundering.
Parrett was the former vice chairman of National Century
Financial Enterprises, formerly based in suburban Columbus. She
disappeared in March 2008 following her conviction.
