Businessman asks for acquittal on 29 counts


Bradford Huebner


An Ottawa Hills businessman convicted by a federal court jury of convincing investors to purchase Iraqi currency under false pretenses is asking the court to acquit him on 29 of the 42 counts.

Bradford Huebner, 66, was found guilty May 22 on all counts against him, but in a motion filed in U.S. District Court on Thursday, he asked the court to acquit him on 29 counts of structuring transactions to evade reporting requirements.

Huebner contends the government failed to prove he knew of the reporting requirement for cash deposits of $10,000 or more before Dec. 27, 2010.

His filing comes one day after co-defendant Charles Emmenecker, 67, of Sylvania petitioned the court for a new trial. Huebner and Emmenecker were convicted of conspiracy to commit wire fraud in connection with the $24 million scheme.
