BitClub Network defendant Matthew Brent Goettsche has rejected an offered plea deal.
The news was revealed during a Frye Hearing, held on September 15th.
As per minutes of the proceedings, Goettsche’s attorney advised the court a plea deal had been discussed with the DOJ.
Goettsche (right) had discussed the deal with his attorney but chosen to reject it, instead opting to take the case to trial.
Although nothing is set in stone, I believe if Goettsche goes to trial he’ll wind up with a lengthy prison sentence.
This is based on the mountain of evidence the DOJ has, and cooperation of Goettsche’s co-defendants.
Russ Medlin was arrested in Indonesia back in June. I believe he’ll be extradited to the US at some point but there hasn’t been any news since.
Weeks accepting a plea deal is still a possibility. I’d be surprised if Medlin is offered one.
Matt Goettsche’s Frye Hearing aside, the BitClub Network criminal case has been continued until November 15th.
