Why Woodberry’s case was dismissed – Lawyer

Michael Nash, the Chicago lawyer representing Woodberry, has said that the dismissal of the fraud allegation against his client makes no difference.

Woodberry was arrested alongside Hushpuppi and extradited to the US where he’s being tried for fraud.

“The government dismissed the case because it charged him with a slightly different crime. In the long run, no difference”, he said.

Assistant U.S. Attorney, Joseph D. Fitzpatrick in reaction to the news disclosed that Woodperry still has an eight-count charge of wire fraud against him.

He said, “We dismissed the complaint, but the indictment (charging 8 counts of wire fraud) is still active. We cannot comment on the dismissal of the complaint, but I wanted to make sure you knew the indictment is still active.
