Genesee County prosecutors are charging three Oakland County attorneys with racketeering stemming from an alleged debt collection scheme.

The Fishman Group law firm in Bloomfield Hills specializes in debt collection.

On Tuesday, authorities arrested 70-year-old Marc Fishman. He is the president and CEO of the Fishman Group. Also arrested was his son, 32-year-old Ryan Fishman and 33-year-old Alexandra Ichim, a third attorney in the law firm.

A former UAW president faces prison time after pleading guilty Wednesday to charges including embezzlement, racketeering and tax evasion.

When he’s sentenced in October, Gary Jones could get up to five years on each of two counts and fined a quarter million dollars, though the sentence will likely be less, since Jones has agreed to cooperate with a federal investigation into the union.
