Federal prosecutors in Miami have stepped up their case against AEY Inc. and the 22-year-old arms dealer accused of selling shoddy and illegal ammo to the U.S. government to supply the Afghan Army.
Prosecutors have filed a superseding indictment, adding a stack of wire fraud charges to the initial case
that led to the arrest of Efraim Diveroli and three other business associates on June 19 for violations of the Arms Control Export Act.
There's no new allegations from the previous indictment
, but the U.S. attorney in Miami decided to hang wire fraud charges on each of the money transfers the firm received from the U.S. Army.
Diveroli now faces 13 counts of wire fraud, which under federal law carry a possible sentence of up to 20 years in prison.
This all makes getting arrested for drunk driving
and accused of domestic violence
seem like no big deal.
