Washington’s King County prosecutor’s office has a new division to handle complex financial crimes.
It will prosecute cases of identity theft, mortgage and insurance fraud and computer offenses.
Prosecutor Norm Maleng had started putting the division together before he died in May.
The division started work last month, and one of its first cases involves a caregiver accused of stealing more than $60,000 from an elderly woman by taking her credit card on shopping sprees.
