The saga of Ponzi scheme architect and federal convict Ron Wilson continues, as US Attorney Bill Nettles announced a new indictment of Wilson, his wife and his brother Tuesday.
Nettles, the lead attorney on the Wilson case, informed the media that Wilson has been indicted on two new charges; conspiracy to obstruct justice and giving false statements to federal agents. According to the indictment, issued by a federal grand jury earlier in the day (Tuesday), Wilson gave his brother Timothy L. Wilson an ammunition canister filled with gold and silver coins and additional currency.
Ron Wilson did so after he had been arrested on the original charges, and had given sworn statements that he had no other assets in hand. Timothy Wilson subsequently hid that canister, in an effort to withhold it from the federally appointed receiver. The indictment further alleges that Ron Wilson also gave his wife Cassandra Wilson a similar canister, filled with silver, gold and currency.
