Fed trial dates moved back for Warren man charged in Ponzi scheme

CLEVELAND — The hearing next week and jury trial Oct. 22 in U.S. District Court here for Keelan Harris of Warren, charged in a Ponzi scheme that sent his brother to prison, have been moved back.

The new dates are 2 p.m. Dec. 9 for the final pretrial and 9 a.m. Dec. 16 for his trial.

His attorney, J. Gerald Ingram, requested the delay because of the volume of material to review in the case being heard by Judge Christopher A Boyko.

Harris, 37, remains in federal custody on the charges — eight counts of wire fraud and four counts of money laundering. His brother, Kevin, is serving a seven-year federal prison term.
