Trial of Debt Settlement Mastermind Sergiy Bezrukov Postponed, Again

| By:


The trial of debt settlement mastermind Sergiy Bezrukov has been postponed until April 1, 2019, court records indicate. The planned January 14 start date was just the latest in a series of postponements.

Bezrukov is charged with conspiracy to defraud, mail fraud, wire fraud, bank fraud, and money laundering. The charges carry a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison and a $1,000,000 fine.

Several of his co-conspirators have already pleaded guilty.

Bezrukov has been sitting in jail for more than 2 years waiting for the trial to begin. Bail was not granted because he refused to surrender his Ukranian passport to authorities, one of the two countries he shares dual-citizenship with. Bezrukov claims he lost it.
