A former Brentwood CEO appeared before a U.S. Magistrate in Nashville Monday after his capture in Jacksonville earlier this month, The Nashville Post reports. Don Cochran, U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee, said in a statement that George David George, who had led wellness-focused social networking company WellCity, faces several charges, many dating back to May 2015. George did not appear in U.S. District Court for a bond revocation hearing. He was later indicted in May 2017 for failing to appear in court. He was initially charged with felony counts of securities fraud, mail fraud, wire fraud and money laundering in connection with a multimillion-dollar investment scheme, and also faces additional counts of wire fraud.
