MIAMI (AP) - Two more former associates of convicted Florida Ponzi scheme operator Scott Rothstein are facing federal charges.
Prosecutors said Thursday that 66-year-old William Boockvor and 42-year-old Marybeth Feiss are charged with conspiracy as part of the $1.2 billion scheme. Court records did not indicate whether either has hired an attorney.
Court documents say Bookvor helped Rothstein falsify bank records that misled investors about their balance statements. Rothstein's scam involved fake legal settlements.
Feiss allegedly violated federal election laws by helping Rothstein illegally bundle more than $1 million in law firm contributions to 2008 Republican presidential candidate John McCain's campaign. Prosecutors say that led to Rothstein being named a Republican convention delegate.
The McCain campaign is not accused of wrongdoing.
Both defendants face potential five-year prison sentences. Rothstein is serving 50 years.
