ATHENS, Ga. (AP) A man accused of running an investment fraud scheme that lost millions in investor dollars is set to be sentenced. <br />
Gregory Crabtree of Proctorville, Ohio, is set for sentencing Tuesday in Athens. Crabtree pleaded guilty to a single conspiracy charge in April and faces up to five years in prison. <br />
Prosecutors accused him and former University of Georgia football coach Jim Donnan ran a fraudulent investment scheme from September 2007 to December 2010 through GLC Limited, a West Virginia-based company dealing in wholesale and closeout merchandise. <br />
Donnan went to trial in May and a jury acquitted him of all charges. His lawyers argued that he was as much a victim of a fraudulent investment scheme as the rest of the investors.
The woman who was shot and critically wounded by a Georgia sheriff told a detective the shooting was an accident that happened while they were practicing self-defense tactics in an empty model home in Gwinnett County, her father said Friday.
