Some of the Chicago-area suspects charged in a national mortgage fraud investigation appeared in court Tuesday. Last month, federal investigators charged 67 people in the Chicago area. Authorities say the suspects were involved in a series of scams.

Tuesday, 19 suspects were arraigned and pleaded not guilty. Most were released on recognizance bond. The suspects are due back in court on September 11.
