Description

The investigation uncovered a con- promising early paroles or releases for family members and loved ones serving time in Texas prisons in exchange for money-- between ex-con Robert Andrew Coats and Dallas attorney Jeff Fletcher. The promises were never fulfilled after the money was paid. After its exposure, the con was labelled the "largest illegal parole fraud scheme ever uncovered in Texas."
