Dawson - The Mayor of Dawson attends the first City Council meeting since his arrest for insurance fraud. His supporters say the charges should not affect his job.

Prosecutors say Robert Albritten was preying on the elderly, fraudulently taking out insurance polices on them and collecting when they died. Tuesday night, Albritten refused to comment on the charges. And the charges were not discussed during the Dawson city council meeting, the first since Albritten's arrest last week.

Council member Janet Mitchell doesn't think Albritten will allow the accusations against to affect his leadership. "He will keep his personal life personal."

Prosecutors say Albritten was running a scam with Pearlie Johnson, the owner of Quality Personal Care home. He is charged with taking out insurance policies on at least 10 elderly people. He collected $8,000 after three of them died.

The case may go to trail before the end of this year.
