Bringing closure to a case we’ve been following literally for years since it was first reported way back in June 2006, fraudster Edwin Pena was sentenced last Friday to 10 years in prison and ordered to repay the $1 million in restitution. It appears he also won’t be in the US after he serves his time:
In addition to his 120-month prison sentence, Pena was ordered to pay restitution of a little more than $1m. He will also be deported once he completes his time. Pena has already surrendered a large number of luxury items that were purchased using the ill-gotten profits, including a 40-foot motor boat and a 2004 BMW M3.
Back in February 2010, Pena pled guilty and provided some details into what he had done. This previous blog post provides links to additional parts of the story.
Nice to see this finally end…
