Ex-envoy who aided Ponzi schemer Stanford must pay $758,000, Dallas jury decides

A federal jury decided Friday that former U.S. Ambassador to Ecuador Peter Romero can’t keep more than $758,000 in fees, expenses and interest he earned while lending his counsel and credibility to disgraced billionaire Allen Stanford.

 Romero will have to pay that sum to the court-appointed receiver who sued him and about a dozen other members of Stanford’s handpicked cadre of well-connected advisers. Romero’s was the first of many such trials, including one set for March seeking to claw back $5 million paid to former Texas Lt. Gov. Ben Barnes.

 Stanford was convicted in 2012 of money laundering and fraud and is serving a 110-year sentence in a federal prison in Florida. He has appealed his conviction to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Receiver Paul Janvey has alleged that Romero and the other well-placed consultants failed to ask even the simplest of questions about Stanford’s phony banking empire.
