Last Freedom Financial Defendant Convicted of Conspiracy, Wire Fraud

Bertram Case "Casey" Miller, the only one of eight people charged in the Freedom Financial Services case who chose to go to trial, was convicted Thursday by a federal court jury in Little Rock of one count of conspiracy and three counts of wire fraud, U.S. Attorney Bud Cummins announced.

Miller's attorney, Chuck Banks, was not available for comment Friday afternoon.

The jury found Miller not guilty on three other counts of wire fraud.

Miller's seven codefendants, including Freedom Financial owner Nelson Miller (no relation), have all accepted plea agreements since the first charges were filed in December 2004.

No sentencing date has been set.
