ATLANTA (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a Georgia man accused of
making more than $1 million from the sale of fake vintage horror
movie posters has found another way to continue his scheme.
Kerry Haggard, was released on $100,000 bail after he was arrested in April 2010 on mail fraud charges.
But U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said in a letter filed Monday that Haggard has since recruited someone to sell 81 posters and other items on his behalf, defying a court order. He urged the judge to revoke Haggard's bail and issue a warrant for his arrest.
Prosecutors say Haggard sold fake reproductions from movies such
as "Frankenstein" for $500 to $5,000, bilking victims of more than $1 million over a four-year span.
A message left with Haggard's lawyer was not immediately returned.
