Published: June 19,2013
GULFPORT — A trial date has been set for a couple accused of running a fraudulent shipping business in Biloxi.
The Sun Herald reports 34-year-old Dustin Lee Griswold and his wife, 37-year-old Jennifer Lynn Griswold, pleaded not guilty Monday in U.S. District Court.
Their trial date is Aug. 5
A grand jury indicted each on a conspiracy charge and the husband on 15 counts of wire fraud in allegations involving their company, Harmoni Shipping.
The indictment alleges the couple claimed to own an international shipping business with barges to move ocean freight, and hired companies such as UPS Freight to make land deliveries for their customers. They’re accused of conspiring to take money in advance but failing to pay the delivery companies.
It was unclear whether the Griswolds have an attorney.
