Fraud charged where agent takes premiums but issues no policies

When someone can't get a license for an alcohol permit, he or she may improperly get another person to act as the owner. This is called using a "straw party" to create a shield to allow the real owner to continue in control. This was one of the issues involved at a Louisiana administrative hearing before an Alcohol and Tobacco Control Commissioner regarding the alcohol permits of several Gentilly area gas station convenience stores. The hearing turned into a 10-hour round-robin jumble of issues dealing with the alleged fraud activities of basically one man and his ex-wife, who were prohibited from having any alcohol licenses due to the man's felony firearm and cocaine convictions.
