Objectivity 4.3 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.6

Monica Cannon-Grant, a Black Lives Matter leader in Boston, and her husband, Clark Grant, were hit with an 18-page federal indictment for engaging in three different fraud schemes: lying on a mortgage application, defrauding donors and illicitly collecting approximately $1 million in pandemic-related unemployment benefits. Cannon-Grant has claimed innocence online and, under the terms of her release from Judge Judith Dein, is allowed to continue to work at her nonprofit twice a week but cannot handle the finances.
