Submitted by: Chris, Los Angeles
ANSWER: According to U.S. District Court online records, Daniel Chartraw's sentencing has been continued to July 18.
Chartraw, a former El Dorado Hills resident, pleaded guilty in January to wire fraud in connection with a multimillion-dollar investment fraud scheme.
Between Jan. 1, 2007 and Nov. 30, 2011, according to court documents, Chartraw defrauded numerous investors by falsely representing investments in mines, mining and refinery equipment, oil commodities, precious metals concentrate and multimillion-dollar certificates of deposit.
Investors lost an estimated $2,606,448 to $3,639,448 through Chartraw's schemes, according to the plea agreement.
Chartraw had a primary residence in an El Dorado Hills mansion until 2010, when he moved to Monterey County. He subsequently was arrested on the Central Coast, then disappeared until he was arrested by Mexican authorities, who turned him over to U.S. authorities in April 2012.
