3 face June trial in Wyoming wind farm fraud case

Apr 4, 2013

Three people accused of defrauding investors of more than $4 million by falsely claiming to be developing wind farms in Wyoming and South Dakota are set to stand trial in June.

U.S. District Judge Scott Skavdahl of Casper has scheduled a three-week trial starting June 3.

Defendants Robert Arthur Reed and Lauren Elizabeth Scott of Utah and Gregory Lee Doss of California are charged with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and conspiracy to launder money. Reed faces additional charges of mail fraud, wire fraud and money laundering.

Prosecutors have declined to identify the people they say were victims in the case. They say victims were first contacted by phone solicitors.

Defense lawyers either declined comment or didn't respond to requests for comment.
