"Mortgage-fraud fugitive Ronnie Duke attacks prosecutor in federal court | Detroit Free Press | freep.com

A convicted mortgage-fraud fugitive who had been missing for eight months assaulted a federal prosecutor in an open courtroom in downtown Detroit this afternoon, just hours after getting nabbed in Saline.

Ronnie Duke, who had been on the lam since failing to report for his 13-year prison sentence last June, attacked the prosecutor during his arraignment on a bond skipping charge. According to U.S. District Court spokesman Rod Hansen, Duke had just consented to detention and was signing paperwork when he went after the female prosecutor.

“The marshals were all over him,” Hansen said, noting “it wasn’t just a push or something like that.”

The prosecutor’s name has not yet been released. The U.S. Attorney’s Office said the case is under investigation.

According to Hansen, court officials called for EMS, but the prosecutor opted to take herself to the hospital to be checked out. He said she seems to be OK.

Duke, 46, of Fenton had been missing since last June, when he failed to surrender to the federal Bureau of Prisons to start his 13-year prison sentence for running a massive fraud scheme that cost lenders more than $100 million in losses — some of which was used to buy cars, boats, trips and a helicopter for several people who were in on the scam.

After his sentencing, the government had feared he would flee and objected to releasing him on bond. But U.S. District Judge Julian Abele Cook continued the bond and trusted him to self-report for sentencing, which is common in white-collar crime cases.

Defense attorney Harold Gurewitz, who represented Duke at trial, said his client gave the court no reason to fear he would flee.

“He had been completely cooperative on all occasions before. I didn’t think there were any obvious signs that he wouldn’t show,” said Gurewitz, who no longer represents Duke.

Gurewitz declined comment on today’s incident, beyond saying he was relieved to learn the prosecutor was OK.

In addition to prison time, Duke, 46, was ordered to pay a $1-million fine and $94 million in restitution for his crime, which involved more than 500 fraudulent mortgage loans, more than 100 straw buyers and about 180 residential properties in metro Detroit. Duke was the ringleader of the operation, which came to a halt in 2007, when the FBI executed seven search warrants in metro Detroit and Florida.

Lenders were deceived by counterfeit purchase agreements, fake closing documents and fictitious title companies that actually were controlled by Duke and his coconspirators. The warranty deeds and mortgages associated with the majority of the loans went unrecorded, leaving the lenders unsecured.

Fifteen of Duke’s coconspirators have been sentenced. Their sentences range from 33 months to 10 years.

The FBI said Duke spent his fraud proceeds to operate a car racing business called Hardcore Racing. He purchased numerous sports cars, race cars, boats, motorcycles and a helicopter. Duke’s codefendants used their proceeds in similar ways, buying cars, boats, motorcycles, race horses, residential properties and trips to the Caribbean.

Duke’s criminal history includes embezzlement, credit card fraud, receiving and concealing stolen property, escape, aggravated stalking and disturbing the peace."

Ronnie Duke is an American male who happens to be Caucasian.
This is a a racist slur against Caucasian males.
I am outraged and saddened to see Caucasian males being portrayed as criminals.
This has also been done using other races, ethnicities, and religions.
This blatant attack on all peoples must be stopped.
Why can't cartoon characters be used to end the racial animus?

fyi, the avatar for ronnie duke was recycled from a crime city RB called sam flagg. Gree is now so lazy they are re-using art between different games.

Does it really matter who they have as the raid boss? Does it matter that it was recycled form CC? No it doesn't. Quit complaining over little details I think their is much bigger fish to fry than a recycled RB picture.
