Attorney Accused Of Fraudulently Collecting A Pension

The son of a deceased Central Falls police officer is accused of collecting his father's pension after both of his parents died. Police say that attorney Raymond Haskell fraudulently collected over 63-thousand-dollars from the city since June of 2014. He turned himself in Thursday morning and faces charges including obtaining money under false pretenses and identity fraud. Investigators say Haskell's father died in 1997 and when his mother died in May of 2014, the pension should have stopped the following month.
