Budget Finance Ponzi scheme victims right to be heard at sentencing

The perpetrator of a $30 million Ponzi scheme has pleaded guilty in federal court to wire fraud, mail fraud, and money laundering. Donna Brown faces up to 20 years and $250,000 on each charge. There were over 800 victims, and most were West Virginians.

Victims of the scheme have the right to be heard at the sentencing hearing. In order to exercise that right any victim who wishes to speak or have a statement read at the hearing must contact the court by January 17, 2017.
