“I had no involvement at all,” Butler told News 10. “I was investigated. I was never criminally charged in any of that.” She says her brother, who worked for her law firm, was the person who colluded in the insurance scam. “I was implicated because my brother used my vehicle to stage the accidents,” she said.
