CT Attorney General: Scam allegations are shocking

Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen talks about the "despicable" crimes committed by scam artists who exploit tragedy.

One woman, Nouel Alba, was arrested by the FBI on charges of lying to federal agents investigating fraudulent fundraising. CNN had questioned Alba about emails soliciting donations for the funeral of a 6-year-old victim of the Newtown school shooting.

Jepsen is not prosecuting Alba, but she cold face additional charges. "If found in violation of Connecticut state law, she could be prosecuted criminally or civil law as well, but the federal government is after her," says Jepsen. "The full weight of that office is substantial."
