Angelo Haligiannis managed the hedge fund Sterling Watters as a Ponzi scheme and pleaded guilty in 2005 of defrauding investors of tens of millions of dollars. He fled an expected 15-year jail term the day before his scheduled sentencing on January 11, 2006.[1][2]

He was recaptured on the island of Crete in August, 2007, conditionally released by Greek authorities, and then arrested again in September of that year.[3]
