The prosecution has finished its case-in-chief against alleged investment scammer Ed Okun.
The key witness in the case, a former manager of an exchange company purchased by Okun, testified she hid up to $18 million of client money to prevent it from being stolen.
A Richmond federal jury heard further incriminating testimony from former employees, accountants, lawyers and victims, reports the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
Okun is accused of running a Ponzi scheme, where he stole $132 million from 577 victims across the country. In addition to purchasing exchange companies to keep his scheme running, Okun spent over $30 million on personal indulgences, including a 131-foot yacht and a lavish $171,000 wedding.
The wedding video was barred from the courtroom, but for those who are curious, the Times-Dispatch Web site includes it with their article.
