Soldier who allegedly killed 16 Afghans accused of financial fraud in Ohio
Source: WCPO in Cincinnati
9 News has learned about previous crimes allegedly committed by Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales, who is suspected of carrying out a nighttime attack on two Afghan villages that left 16 people dead, including nine children. Formal charges are expected to be filed within a week for Bales' involvement in the incident, according to the Associated Press.
Just one year before entering the military, Bales -- a Norwood, Ohio, native -- was accused of stealing money from an Ohio couple in an elaborate scheme.
While working as a financial advisor, Bales was ordered to pay more than $1.5 million to the Liebschners, who reside in Columbus, according to documents from the National Association of Securities Dealers and FINRA.
In 2003, Bales was ordered to pay $637,000 as compensatory damaged, plus interest at the Ohio statutory rate of 10 percent until the date of payment in full, $637,000 as punitive damages, $216,500 as attorney's fees, $375 to reimburse the Liebschners' filing fee, and several other small damages. Seven other individuals and companies are listed in the arbitration and accused of the same charges.
