The Sun Sentinel reports that Thomas Guerriero, former director of British-based Oxford City Football Club was sentenced to 12 years and 7 months for his role in orchestrating a $6.6 million boiler room operation that has financially ruined the lives of many of the elderly victims.
Guerriero lived on Hillsboro Beach and operated his scam from an office in Deerfield Beach, FL.
Victims told the court at the sentencing that they were “cold called” and were tempted by promises of becoming millionaires. Investors who wanted to back out were physically threatened by Guerriero.
Seven others who participated in the scheme have pleaded guilty to related charges and will be sentenced in the future:
- Diana P. Lovera, 32 and Victor Lovera, 28, of Deerfield Beach
- Edward R. Sachs, 56, of Boca Raton
- Joseph Loish, 59, and Frank Penaloza, 30, of Pompano Beach
- Steven L. Goldstein, 60, of Sunrise
- Steven Sharaf, 63, of Pembroke Pines
