Suspect Convicted Three Years After Russian Fraud Scheme Compromised San Juan Unified Records

Sonseeahray Tonsall reports:

Three years ago, FOX40 first reported that as many as 200 academic records were stolen from the San Juan Unified School district and discovered in an FBI raid of homes in Sacramento and Studio City.

Now 37-year-old Mihran Melkonyan has been convicted on 26 counts of wire and mail fraud.
