Eric Conn pleads not guilty to escape charges

Nabbed at a Pizza Hut fugitive lawyer returns to justice

The hunt led searchers to a Walmart parking lot in New Mexico over the summer and, finally, to the Pizza Hut in Honduras on Saturday. "Social Security." He fueled that persona with outlandish TV commercials and small-scale replicas of the Statue of Liberty and the Lincoln Memorial at his office in eastern Kentucky. According to the indictment, the conspirators intended that the SSA disburse more than $550 million in disability benefits in more than 2,000 cases to claimants in Kentucky and elsewhere, irrespective of the claimants' actual entitlement to benefits. "And hopefully his capture now will give us an opportunity to try to recover some of that money".

Conn who pleaded guilty to orchestrating a more than $500 billion social security fraud scheme went missing back in June after the Federal Bureau of Investigation says he cut off his electronic monitor. He now faces additional time for eluding authorities.

The Kentucky attorney responsible for the biggest social security scam in USA history appeared in federal court Wednesday.

White said Conn helped people in an economically challenged part of the state.

The case against the ring began in 2011 when two Social Security Administration employees filed a whistleblower suit, naming Conn and federal judge David Daugherty.

Cryptocurrency mining marketplace NiceHash hacked, over $70 million in Bitcoin stolen

Federal documents in the case of Eric C Conn remain sealed but some details of his escape and capture are being released slowly to the public. The judge and a psychologist have pleaded guilty and are serving prison terms.

The federal government joined the case previous year.

White later told reporters that Conn was calm when they met for about 40 minutes before the hearing. Conn is also charged with one count of escape and one count of failing to appear.

U.S. Rep. Hal Rogers, R-Somerset, persuaded the SSA to restore payments pending the reviews but hundreds have had to endure the ordeal of trying to rebuild medical records from years ago (many of which Conn destroyed) for their reviews.
