Actor Facing Fraud Trial a Flight Risk?

While Roberto F. Marrero made a name for himself as an actor, federal prosecutors depict him as a con man. They say Marrero and his wife owned a home healthcare agency that bilked Medicare of $15 million.

Because the couple have family ties in Cuba and have traveled there a lot, prosecutors plan to ask a federal judge to detain the couple without bail, according to The Miami Herald.
