U.S. District Judge Robert Gettleman’s order that Trudeau be indefinitely held for failing to disclose where he’s hiding his immense wealth came a week after another federal judge ordered the Oak Brook resident locked up at the end of his criminal contempt trial.
He claimed he was “penniless and homeless.” But an overnight stay in federal jail seems to have had a remarkable effect on discredited TV pitchman and convicted felon Kevin Trudeau’s memory
A federal jury on Tuesday found television pitchman Kevin Trudeau did violate a federal order barring him from making false claims about his diet books on Tuesday.
For lunch and dinner, she said, Trudeau’s devotees may have a “handful” of vegetables and organic grass-fed meat weighing 100 grams raw — roughly the size of a deck of cards.
Using a two-week federal trial to test the truthfulness of an infomercial may sound a little like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut.
Kevin Trudeau was held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in downtown Chicago for allegedly hiding his assets and not paying a federal judgment.
TV pitchman Kevin Trudeau must stay in jail a bit longer, after again failing to convince a judge he’s done all he can to disclose assets to pay off a $37 million fine.
Infomercial pitchman Kevin Trudeau was ordered back into federal custody on Tuesday, despite his pleas that he has no assets to pay off a multimillion-dollar judgment against him.
He wouldn’t talk, so it’s back to jail for TV pitchman Kevin Trudeau for refusing to reveal where he’s hidden millions in ill-gotten gains.
Infomercial host Kevin Trudeau will be getting his freedom this afternoon – after spending the night behind bars, where he was questioned about his financial assets.
Judge Robert Gettleman told Trudeau, 50, of Oak Brook, “This is not an infomercial — you can’t talk your way out of this” after the TV pitchman made an impassioned plea for his freedom.
