BULLETIN: (4th Update 7:23 p.m. EDT U.S.A.) Sann Rodrigues, a figure in the TelexFree Ponzi- and pyramid-scheme case, has agreed to plead guilty to a charge of immigration fraud, court documents say.
The agreement potentially puts the native Brazilian at risk of deportation and a U.S. prison term of up to 10 years. He last was reported living in Davenport, Fla.
Rodrigues, whose full name is Sanderley Rodrigues De Vasconcelos, initially was charged criminally with visa fraud in May 2015. The office of U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz of the District of Massachusetts said he was involved in “several pyramid schemes” and that he had obtained his green card fraudulently.
The SEC charged Rodrigues civilly with securities fraud over TelexFree-related activity in April 2014.
