Infinity2Global defendants hit with superseding indictment
The DOJ has filed a superseding indictment against all seven Infinity2Global defendants on July 11th.
A superseding indictment replaces an existing indictment and is filed either due to legal defect or grand jury irregularity.
In this case I believe a superseding indictment was required owing to the length of time since the original indictment was returned.
Richard Maike, Angela Leonard-Maike, Doyce Barnes, Richard Anzalone, Faraday Hossienipour and Dennis Dvorin were first indicted by a Grand Jury last June.
As far as I can tell there’s nothing of relevance that differs between the two indictments.
Originally the Infinity2Global defendants were originally to stand trial last year, however several complications lead to ongoing delays.
The last significant development I tracked was the rejection of several defendant motions to dismiss.
The rejection order confirmed a previously scheduled trial for January 2019.
Perhaps there’s something I’m missing in the new indictment that differs from the original, which required a superseding indictment to sort out.
Regardless, hopefully with this new indictment the DOJ can perhaps get a trial underway sooner and see the case through.
