1 More Sentence Delay For Wife In Ponzi Scam

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — A judge has agreed to one more sentencing delay for the wife of convicted South Florida Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein, but warns this is the last one.

U.S. District Judge Robin Rosenbaum this week postponed sentencing for Kim Rothstein from Oct. 7 until Nov. 12. It’s the latest of several delays to give Kim Rothstein time to testify in a related trial in hopes of getting a reduced sentence.

Rosenbaum says this will be the last delay no matter what.

Kim Rothstein faces a maximum of five years in prison sentence for hiding and trying to sell about $1 million in jewelry federal agents wanted to seize.

Scott Rothstein is serving 50 years for operating a $1.2 billion Ponzi scheme involving fake legal settlements.
