Marcello Trebitsch Pleads Guilty to Defrauding Investors Out of Nearly $6m

Marcello Trebitsch pled guilty this week to one count of securities fraud for his role in a $6 million Ponzi scheme he ran from 2007-2014. By entering into the plea agreement, Trebitsch also agreed to pay restitution to his victims – more than $5.9 million. Trebitsch was arrested in April of this year.

Trebitsch admitted in his plea agreement that he lied to his customers, promising double-digit returns on investments with Allese Capital at little risk. He also admitted to issuing fake account statements to conceal the fact that he was only investing a fraction of his clients’ money, and the money he did invest, he was losing.

Trebitsch is the son-in-law of former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, who was indicted on corruption charges earlier this year in February.
