3 Hebrew Boys sentencing date set

Sep 14, 2010 1:40:00 PM - thestate.com
The three leaders of the $82 million 3 Hebrew Boys Ponzi scheme will be sentenced on Dec. 14, court records show.

The 3 Hebrew Boys — named after the biblical tale of men who survived an inferno because of their faith — lured 7,000 people from two dozen states, including many from military bases and churches, with promises to help pay off their debt at a fraction of its cost.

Instead, the trio used the proceeds to go on a $25 million spending spree that included a home near Walt Disney World, three Atlanta condos, three luxury stadium boxes in Charlotte and Atlanta, more than 20 cars, a $1 million motorcoach and $5 million personal jet.

The Columbia-area men who called themselves the 3 Hebrew Boys — Joseph Brunson, Tim McQueen and Tony Pough — have remained in jail since they were convicted in November on 58 federal charges of mail fraud, money laundering and transporting stolen goods.

They face up to 30 years behind bars.
