Back in the Slammer

Michael Olaf Schütt, a Naples, Florida man who pled guilty to operating an illegal online poker payment processing company was put back in jail because of concerns by his estranged wife, Jennifer Sherman, that he would flee. The court seized almost $2.5 million from his numerous bank accounts.

Schütt was out on $100,000 bond and was helping federal authorities investigate a multimillion dollar money-laundering operation. According to federal court records, Sherman "indicated she was in fear, was afraid her husband was going to flee, and wished to be removed from the defendant’s bond." Schütt's December sentencing was moved up to November 8.
