Ron Wilson sentenced to nearly 20 years in federal prisonGREENVILLE COUNTY — Before he was led out in handcuffs, Ponzi schemer and former Anderson County Council member Ron Wilson said he had cleared his conscience.
Wilson, 65, was sentenced Tuesday in a Greenville federal courtroom and he will spend the next 19 and a half years behind bars for running a decade-long scam that ended with $57.4 million lost from nearly 800 investors.
“I took from my brother and from my daughter,” Wilson said before he was sentenced. “I am extremely sorry for what I have done. My conscience is clearer now than it has been in years.”
