Jury delivers guilty verdict in Liberty Dollar trial


The Liberty Dollar’s creator, Bernard von NotHaus, was convicted 3/18/11 of “making coins resembling and similar to United States coins” and “issuing and passing Liberty Dollar coins intended for use as current money,” among other charges.  Federal officials also see gold. On April 4 a forfeiture trial began to determine whether the government is entitled to claim almost $7 million in Liberty Dollars and precious metals that was seized when von NotHaus was arrested. Von Nothaus also is facing multiple prison terms totaling 20 years and multiple fines that could total as much as $500,000 as well as loss of his seized property.

  2. The criminals are obviously running the justice system. Why else would it be called the “Criminal Justice System”?
