Former Democratic California Rep. TJ Cox Indicted for Fraud, Faces Up to 55 Years in Prison
TJ Cox joins the growing list of Democrats who’ve run afoul of the law. On Tuesday, the former California Congressman was indicted for Fraud and could face up to 55 years in prison.
Cox, who served a single term in congress (2019-2021), was indicted on 28 charges by a federal grand jury.
According to The Daily Caller, the charges stem from “an alleged scheme run out of a business development organization for which he previously served as president.”
The Department of Justice released a statement noting that Cox is charged with fifteen counts of wire fraud, eleven counts of money laundering, one count of financial institution fraud, and one count of campaign contribution fraud.
The statement also noted that the former Congressman “faces up to 55 years in prison and a $1.5 million fine if convicted of all charges.”
