Bag of $120,000 in cash allegedly left at home of juror just before deliberations began in massive fraud trial

Star Tribune:

The trial, now entering its seventh week, in the first one in a broader fraud case that prosecutors have called one of the largest pandemic fraud schemes in the country, totaling more than $250 million in federal money meant to feed needy children.


The 23-year-old juror wasn't home when the woman showed up, but the unnamed person left the juror's father-in-law a bag of cash and told him to tell the juror that another bag of cash would be dropped off if she votes to acquit the seven defendants in the fraud case
