QUESTION: Did Daniel Chartraw get convicted?
Submitted by: Butch, El Dorado Hills
ANSWER: A trial date has not been set for former El Dorado Hills resident Daniel Chartraw.
According to federal court online records, his next court date, a status conference, is scheduled Jan. 24.
Chartraw was indicted by a federal grand jury in Sacramento on 18 counts of wire fraud in connection with uranium mines, oil commodities, precious metals in concentrate, dairy financing, gold refining and mining, and movie production.
He is accused of bilking investors out of $2.4 million between 2007 and 2011.
He entered a not-guilty plea on May 23, 2012.
According to a story in The Bee, Chartraw had a primary residence in an El Dorado Hills mansion until 2010, when he moved to Monterey County.
Subsequently, he was arrested on the Central Coast, then disappeared until he was arrested by Mexican authorities who deported him, turning him over to U.S. agents last April.
