Judge appoints lawyer in N.D. investment fraud case

Published 07/16/2009, The Jamestown Sun

A judge on Wednesday appointed an attorney to represent a man accused of bilking investors out of millions of dollars in an alleged Ponzi scheme, saying the man should not represent himself while he searches for a lawyer. Neville Solomon, 66, of Georgetown, Guyana, has pleaded not guilty to four counts, including wire fraud and conspiracy to defraud the United States. The case dates back nearly a decade, when North Dakota officials started getting questions from people who had been solicited as potential investors in bank programs that promised high returns risk-free.
