Fraud suspect arraigned
Robert George appeared for arraignment on Thursday for a 25-count felony warrant for swindling $700,000 out of Ypsilanti Township residents alone.

Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Detective Kevin Parviz alleges George was selling condominiums in the Crystal Ponds Condominiums development, but pocketing deposits, construction payments and other fees for personal use.

The investigation began in 2005 and the charges include obtaining money under false pretenses in excess of $20,000, larceny by conversion and fraudulent use of building contract funds.

Parviz named 30 people who have lost their life savings because of the scheme.
George has sought the protection of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to avoid having to return the $20 million toal he allegedly stole.

George was released from arraignment with a $500,00 cash surety bond and pretrial is scheduled for December 16 at the Washtenaw County Circuit Court
