Hareidi Lawyer Suspected of Fraud Sent to House Arrest

A hareidi lawyer who, along with her husband is suspected of theft, forgery, money laundering, obstruction of justice and other offenses was released on Sunday to house arrest under restrictive conditions.

The couple were arrested last week on suspicion of serious fraud offenses. The police launched an investigation against them after it was discovered that the wife spent 800,000 shekels from a trust account for personal transactions, and returned the money a short time later.
