Daniel Filho consents to custody, criminal case continues
Oct.10, 2015 in DFRF Enterprises, regulation
Despite a recent telephonic announcement in which an individual, purported to be Daniel Filho, declared he “hope(s) to be free very soon”, a hearing has seen Filho remanded to the custody of the US Marshals Service.
Filho had the option to oppose detention but instead waived his right to do so.
A Status Report on the case is now due to be filed by November 3rd, with an Interim Status Conference Hearing scheduled for November 10th.

he’s scared of somebody.
You’ve got that right. Only wish we knew who the “somebody” is or “someone’s” are that he is scared of to stay in jail.
I hadn’t considered it, but on that note the Order of Voluntary Detention states Filho
Why Filho is being isolated is not disclosed.
In some jurisdictions time served prior to sentencing counts double so if a man figures he’s going to end up doing time anyway (especially if its prison time) he just gets on with it.
For example a guy might do six months in County Jail prior to sentencing which results in a credit for time served of a year. That’s a year he won’t have to do in a penitentiary.
it seems that filho may not have much of a support system [financial/moral] as evidenced by his difficulty in arranging counsel for himself initially.
he would need to be out of prison to arrange help for himself, or get rid of any hidden accounts or properties which career criminals like him probably have.
so, there is a good case for the argument that he agreed to custody out of fear of something.
there have always been whispers of drug trafficking around him, and the sinaloa cartel he has been allegedly involved with, are known to be dangerous.
Don’t forget Danny was tight with the Sinaloa Cartel. If he was cheating average Joes, how much money you think he swindled out of them?
none… nobody swindles them.
his reason of being afraid is due to his imprisionment, you see, once he was taken into custody, the cartels automatically assume he gave them information about them (which would be a high priority with some one with daniels inside knowledge), so he knows as soon as he’s out.. hes as good as gone.
It doesn’t work that way with the Feds. You only get credit for time served. No more, no less. He’s hiding from someone.
Depends on to what extent his separate custody is applied. Note it is not listed as “Protective/Protected Custody.”
The way I read and understand the wording of that agreement, he gets a single occupancy room. Beyond that he’s most likely mixed in with general population of his facility.
It’s much easier for an organized criminal enterprise to take care of him inside a large facility because he’s easy to find.
He might also be using the custody and this type of agreement as a cover to pass information of accounts and other dealings outside through another inmate in similar housing to his criminal associates.
Many a fine scheme and criminal enterprise are ran out of custody institutions.
Oz, the link below an exclusive interview, conducted by the scammer, partner – and also journalist from Gate Media House – Beto Moraes.
Filho say his lawyers are working on an agreement PROPOSED BY THE SEC, in order to liquidate US associated accounts.
Notice that, in the phone call, he says they are preparing a new structure to comply with all government requirements. I think that, based on that, one can assume he is planning to EXTEND/RELOAD THE SCAM.
Didn’t Beto learn his lesson after his last Filho interview ended in broken promises?
The DOJ are pursuing criminal charges against Filho, they aren’t going to drop the case because of purported settlements with the SEC.
Sounds to me like Filho either doesn’t understand the gravity of what he’s facing or is still in denial.
Right, and Filho also said he expects to be released soon, then chose to stay in jail. “Cry wolf”, any one?
I think it can be one of two ways: Either he is just another lunatic super-ego thinking he can fool the justice in the situation he is. Or he really have some ‘ace’, some expectation that he is protected from any conviction.
Let’s not forget he pretty much ‘got way with murder’ in EMG case. His partner Pedro Benevides got in jail, while he got nothing on him.
I won’t make any further comments on it. I’m just looking forward for the outcome.
I do not understand why so many people ( investors) continuing supporting and sponsorship this “business” in Puerto Rico.
