Despite taunts on the run, Conn enters not guilty plea in escape

FBI wanted poster for Eric Christopher Conn with four of his mugshots labeled'captured

He colluded with a bribed Social Security judge and doctors who certified disabilities in people they had not, in some cases, even seen.

He is expected to be extradited back to the USA on Tuesday.

Conn has now begun serving the twelve year sentence he was given while still on the run.

Conn was arrested outside a Pizza Hut in La Ceiba and has been brought back to Lexington, Kentucky to face justice, the American Bar Association said.

"He's obviously sad that he's back here in the sense of having to deal with this stuff that he thought he had put behind him", White said. A judge set Conn's trial on those charges for February 2018.

Cronan of the Justice Department's Criminal Division, Special Agent in Charge Amy S. Hess of the FBI's Louisville, Kentucky Field Division and Special Agent in Charge Michael McGill of the Social Security Administration-Office of Inspector General's (SSA-OIG) Philadelphia Field Division made the announcement.

"That's wonderful", said Donna Dye, whose husband was among Conn's clients in Appalachia. "He let people like my husband have trust in him, and he let that down".

Eric Conn pleaded not guilty plea to escape charges. "Social Security." He fueled that flamboyant persona with outlandish TV commercials and small-scale replicas of the Statue of Liberty and the Lincoln Memorial at his office in eastern Kentucky. Two committed suicide after Conn disappeared.

Conn represented thousands in successful claims for Social Security benefits.

Donna Dye's husband, Timothy, was among the throngs of Conn's clients who had to fight to keep their disability checks.

"I have gone through hell", she said by phone Tuesday. It's just been nothing but pain and struggle and worries.

The Kentucky attorney responsible for the biggest social security scam in USA history appeared in federal court Wednesday.

"We look at his arrest as a game-changer", Pillersdorf said.
