Crypto Fowler Pled Guilty Sentencing Delay to April 20 Now US Asks for Ban on Gambling

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 15 – Arizona based crypto-currency maven Reginald Fowler, with multiple accounts with the HSBC, appeared ready to plead guilty on January 15 to a single count, "operation of an unlicensed money transmittal business."

  After that fell through on financial issues, Fowler was hit with a five count Superseding Indictment, adding as a fifth count the catch-all, Wire Fraud. On March 5, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Andrew L. Carter emphasized this fifth count to Fowler, see below.

On April 21, 2022, Fowler wrote in seeking for the second time to plead guilty, and soon.

On April 22, Judge Carter approved and scheduled it: "Change of Plea Hearing set for 4/25/2022 at 02:00 PM before Judge Andrew L. Carter Jr."

On April 25, Inner City Press covered the guilty plea proceeding and live tweeted it here, vlog here

Sentencing was first set for August - then on June 22... On March 2, it was pushed back again to April 20, 2023 at 3:30 pm.

On March 15, the US Attorney's Office wrote in to ask Judge Carter to "restrict him from gambling activities." They says "the Government has obtained records from a casino company in Arizona that indicate that during the pendency of the defendant's criminal case, he has gambled hundreds of thousands of dollar." They do not say if Fowler won or lost, only that "every dollar the defendant has risked at these casinos is a dollar less likely to be paid to victims in restitution."
