More on Ex-Kerrvert Lawyer Perry Cortese Money Laundering Fraud Case

There's a good article in Law360 about Perry Cortese's alleged fraud schemes that cheated victims out of about $8.8 Million, available here: 

The indictment alleges Cortese and a woman conspired with one Muhammed Naji to wire the proceeds of the criminal scams as part of a transnational criminal organization

Cortese and Ellis were also charged in the Aug. 20 indictment with running multiple other fraudulent schemes. According to the government, the defendants hacked into other individuals’ financial accounts and engaged in an apparent “catfishing” scheme whereby they feigned romantic relationships with users of social networking and dating sites and convinced victims to wire funds.

Mr. Cortese faces a maximum prison sentence of 20 years

I checked the federal court's website and it does not appear that he has been released on bond. 

The case in Texas is USA v. Ellis et al., case number 15-mj-00184, in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas. The case in Florida is USA v. Ellis et al., case number 15-cr-00320, in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida.
