In Custody

ST. LUCIE COUNTY JAIL

ST. LUCIE COUNTY JAIL

----------------------------

An inmate search on the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office website, however, doesn't show Rothstein at that jail.

Why Rothstein, who faces up to 100 years on Ponzi-related federal crimes, would be moved from the Federal Detention Center in Miami to the St. Lucie County Jail is a mystery, but one possibility is that he is there cooperating with state agencies investigating aspects of the case. His attorney, Marc Nurik, told the Sun-Sentinel that he had a medical emergency, and the feds have said rather cryptically only that he's still in custody.

I'm going to update this post later in the morning when some additional reporting can be done.
