Are More Arrests to Come in the Scott Rothstein Saga?

Four more people were charged late last week for their alleged roles in the Ponzi scheme of former Fort Lauderdale lawyer and scam-man extraordinaire Scott Rothstein.

The U.S. Attorney's Office announced on Friday that Howard Kusnick , 58, of Tamarac, Stephen Caputi , 53, of Lauderhill, William Corte , 38, of Plantation, and Curtis Renie , 38, of Fort Lauderdale, were each charged with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud -- punishable by up to five years in prison.

The four are all expected to plead guilty to their charges as part of an arrangement with the FBI, which hints to even more future arrests in the Rothstein saga.

"The FBI will continue to unravel the remaining web of fraudulent schemes created by Scott Rothstein," John V. Gillies, the special agent in charge for the FBI's Miami office, said last week when the charges were announced. "We will shine a light on every aspect of this fraud. Like Rothstein, those who chose greed over integrity will also have a price to pay."

There are numerous players in the scandal, which we've chronicled over the years.

We want to hear from you: Do you think there are more arrests to come in the Scott Rothstein saga?
