Confrontation with Peter Beck co-conspirator

CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- An indicted Ohio state representative appeared in court Friday along with one of his also indicted alleged co-conspirators. It was what happened outside the courtroom that proved even more interesting.
State Representative Pete Beck was in court to answer to a new 53 count indictment dealing with his involvement in what the Ohio Attorney General says was a massive investment fraud.

The investigation grew out of a Local 12 News investigation.  Also under indictment is Janet Combs, who according to the attorney general, runs a cult. Beck, Combs and her former church are charged with getting investors to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on largely bogus start-up companies.  More than $650,000 allegedly went to fund the church run by Combs.

When Local 12's Rich Jaffe and our photographer attempted to talk with Combs outside the courtroom, things became very physical right up until the time the group left the courthouse.
