On OneCoin Greenwood US Asks 30 Years Inner City Press to Unseal Sentencing Memo

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Podcast Filing

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 5 -- For money laundering for scam crypto currency OneCoin, lawyer Mark Scott was convicted by a jury after testimony by Konstantin Ignatov and others but was allowed to remain free on bail pending sentencing.

On December 5, 2022, the related indictment against Frank Schneider was unsealed and Inner City Press immediately uploaded it here.  Now  after being released by the French courts to house arrest, Schneider is on the lam.

On April 11, 2023, Judge Ramos heard argument on, then denied, Sebastian Greenwood's argument that non-US losses should be excluded from his sentencing. Inner City Press was there and exclusively live tweeted, here (vlog here)

On May 2, the US asked for additional delay, letter on Patreon here.

On May 10, 2023, Greenwood's counsel wrote in, asking for sentencing after Labor Day - letter on Patreon here.

On May 15, Greenwood got the extension, to September 12.

On August 29, Greenwood's new lawyers from Patterson Belknap (and two already on the case counsel) filed a 55-page sentencing submission, redacting even the name of a case they cited and withholding an undisclosed number of exhibits. (They left in Greenwood's "MDC Transcript," now on Patreon here). They ask for time served. They quote "Karl's former driver in Thailand" - but redact the quote, and withhold the entire affidavit. This is unacceptable --

so Inner City Press filed to unseal. Judge Ramos to his credit docketed it on August 30, and said responses are due September 6.

Inner City Press published Greenwood's redacted memo on Patreon here.

On September 5, the US Attorney's Office filed its memo, asking for a 30 year sentence and including an email from Greenwood to Ruja Ignatova in which he replies that "I will fight day and night to generate a worldwide audience who loves crypto Queen and onecoin. You are for sure a very special person and I could never dream of meeting somebody like you. We have our difference at times, however have the same common ambition and goals. We set the rules along the way and do not take no for an answer." Email on Patreon here.
