Michael Abbell, a former Justice Department lawyer in charge of prosecuting drug smugglers, was indicted along with 60 others on charges of conspiring to protect members of Colombia's Cali cocaine cartel. Two other former Justice Department lawyers were also named in the indictment. Federal officials say the charges stem from activities the three conducted after they left the department. They charge that the three laundered money, fabricated evidence to helpcartel members facing prosecution, and told the Cali heads the name of an informant, whom the drug smugglers executed.
