As rumored that he intended to do so, apparently marking the low bottom of a bipolar cycle a severely depressed Russell Cline ostensibly turned himself over to the US Marshall Service yesterday. He is now in custody at the Multnomah County Detection Center. I hope he receives excellent detoxification and psychiatric treatment.

I have mixed feelings about this: on one side I'm happy getting psychiatric treatment (noone deserves to be crazy)--with enough maybe, just maybe he'll acknowledge his guilt; however on the flipside I wonder if cooperating with the court will give his silly defense that he doesn't know how his furnishings "magically" disappeared from his house more credibility?

Either way I think we should all console Rusty by sending him a copy of humorist Andy Borowitz's hilarious book, http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0743251423/>"Who Moved My Soap: The CEO's Guide to Surviving in Prison"

"You Cline Clubby Muppets should try posting facts, something useful about Orion or Cline instead of the same heresay, innuendo and character assinaton"


"Cline Clubby Muppets"? Interesting phrase, Mr Andrews, however sounds like you're describing your loser self. Which part of the previous posts do you feel were, "heresay, innuendo and character assinaton"? Does being told by the Sheriff's office that Rusty turned himself into the Marshall service count as heresay, I'm sure that's something you didn't know.

Maybe you and him can be cellmates some day.

By: nonoe - to Ol' Hap regarding how this benefits Rusty

At this stage I do not believe Russell will admit guilt (after extensive therapy maybe, most likely not), what I meant in my post is that since Russell wishes to continue to maintain this facade that he doesn't know what happen to his palace's furnishings, turning himself in may give him some remote credibility--to some maybe this will make him appear as law abiding and maybe fool them into believing he really didn't have anything to do with it. He could have always disappeared to some place like say Dominica, which would have really put him in a bad light. Kudos on Rusty's (or more like his talented attorney's) strategy.

The phrase, "on one side I'm happy getting psychiatric treatment" should have been, "on one side I'm happy *he's* getting psychiatric treatment"

RE:"...however on the flipside I wonder if cooperating with the court will give his silly defense that he doesn't know how his furnishings "magically" disappeared from his house more credibility?..."

Full cooperation and admission of guilt is key to leniency, yes. However, bipolar disorder doesn't qualify as insanity and judges tend to be remarkably clear-sighted as far as the "pity me" syndrome of people who commit fraud is concerned. It's quite a classic behavioral tactic, particularly with depressives.

Then again...there *was* that twinkie defense, wasn't there...

Jeff,
get a life. Its funny how all of you cry about russel but yet won't let anyone know who you really are on this message board. Grow some nads jeff and the rest of you. Why do you hide behind false emails afraid of big brother listening in. What do you have to hide. I have nothing to hide already met with them did you? Do your DD before you pop off on the website. Mr. Merchant has a good site here for DD except for a few of you that have nothing better to do than set at your computer and play games?
If you have a problem with me then email me at my email address. I don't hide like some of you. Grow up.

Mikey, just to verify it's really you can you answer the following:
1) What are you doing for employment now?
2) What is your annual salary?
3) How many STDs did you get from parting with Rusty?
4) Was is your daily cocaine intake?
5) Who is a bigger loser: yourself, Seamus Lennon or Jim Hoyt?

Didn't Kristi's parents use to help Jeanne and Tony setup IBCs (or as "Rose" likes to call them Illegal Buisness Corporations) as well as distribute IBC propoganda?

The outcome that Sandstrom will see from this will be interesting. Being as closing involved as she was with the clients and the wire transfers for those years, you would think that playing "naive" would not hold water. As well, the loss that her parents took is a sad fact, but though the "over compensation" that Sandstrom received, hopefully, they were able to recoup some loss, unlike other investors.

By: The Kristi Conundrum

Is Kristi Sandstrom an exploited employee or a willful
accomplice?

If Russell Cline was in a drug stupor 80% of the time how did he run a sophisticated $40million ponzi scheme?

Did Orion explicitly represent investors' deposits would go directly to CMC, or could you surmise Orion really represented when an investor made a deposit they were given a portion of the purpoted personaly funds Rusty had in trading there? (the latter is what would be the defense for Sandstrom and Duffy)

Is turning a blind eye a crime? Ala, "I don't want to know anything about your trading just tell me where to put the money, overpay me, buy me a house and please ignore that I routinly spend funds without your permission".

What concessions should the government make for cooperation?

Is youth, economic depression or greed valid excuses for stupidity?

Would a jury have more sympathy for April Duffy or Kristi Sandstrom?

Is the reason Sandstrom is not a defendant in the CFTC lawsuit while someone who did the exact same thing she did except on a smaller scale (April Duffy) is because:
a) Sandstrom is a close friend of one of the first persons the gov interviewed while the funny dressing, socially misfit and unpopular Duffy was not; b) Sandstrom was smart enough to use mostly offshore accounts; c) The gov felt they should reward her for her cooperation; d) The gov felt she was a victim because her parents invested; or e) All of the above.


These are just some of the tough questions investigators must ask themselves. The only thing I'm certain of is that whatever the government decides is correct.

That's correct it was foreclosed leaving some to ponder how much would have been recovered had the Orion Recievership taken control of it in May. Probably not much . . .
