By Matthew Russell Lee, Periscope here

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 11 – Financial fraud is a growth industry, sometimes dumped Friday afternoon without any presentment or even the case papers being available in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of the New York as on June 14, 2019 when two men were indicted but not presented for a crime likened to three-card Monte, their case number coming up as "cannot find case 19-cr-437."

  Now on January 11, 2021, the sentencing: "DAVID WAGNER was sentenced in Manhattan federal court to 72 months in prison for securities fraud and wire fraud in connection with his operation of a number of corporate entities (collectively referred to as “Downing”) as a Ponzi-like scheme.  WAGNER solicited almost $10 million from approximately 40 Downing investors through materially false and misleading statements and misappropriated a significant portion of those funds, using them for, among other things, the payment of management fees, the repayment of prior investors, and personal expenses.   WAGNER previously pled guilty to these charges, and was sentenced today before U.S. District Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein."
