That's probably why Holder's people did federal charges. It protects her from state charges (double jeopardy). Then, Holder can stall the case for a couple of years, and quietly drop it.
Good thing the case did not start in Michigan. Probably in Florida when it began, no one knew her position in Michigan.
She must be a pretty poor attorney...she can quit claim the property but she cannot quit claim the indenture which is a lien on the property and in her name.
Holder won’t need to forestall it either, just apply the Corzine template: Democrat or Republican. If Democrat dismiss the case.
You are incorrect on that: the "double jeopardy" clause of the US Constitution does not protect the same individual from being prosecuted by both the federal and state governments on criminal charges arising from the same set of events. The US Supreme Court decided that in a landmark case in the 1950s, so, even though it may seem to be unjust, that's been accepted constitutional law since then.
IIRC, back in the 1990s, some police officer(s) involved in the Rodney King case were acquitted on California charges, but then charged by the feds for civil rights violations.
Holder may still protect her, but it is proper to file federal charges because this is a federal crime.
Filing state charges is not “double jeopardy” if there is a state statute that was violated.
