LUBBOCK TX (KCBD) - The man who admits scheming South Plains investors now asks the court for mercy. Rod Stringer pleaded guilty last week and admitted he was running a Ponzi scheme. The judge ordered Stringer locked up between now and his sentencing date. Stringer's attorney has asked the judge to re-consider.
Court documents say that Stringer suffers serious medical issues including rectal bleeding. Stringer's attorney asks that Stringer be released (at least temporarily) to get medical treatment at Stringer's own expense or be transferred to the Arrington Cancer Center at government expense.
