Former Hunter Biden business partner Devon Archer will do prison time for a scheme to bilk the Native American tribe out of $60 million.
Devon Archer on Monday was sentenced to a year and a day for attempting to defraud one of the poorest tribes in the nation, the Oglala Sioux in South Dakota.
From DOJ Press Release
At the time of the indictment Hunter's lawyer said he knew nothing about it.
'The defendants invoked and used Hunter's name - without his knowledge - to lend their business venture more credibility,' attorney George Mesires said.
'As soon as Hunter learned of the illegal conduct, and that his name was being used in this unauthorized and inappropriate manner, Hunter took immediate steps to ensure that his business interests would not be associated with the Burnham Group or with any of the defendants.'
But emails show that Hunter, 52, was involved with other deals with the company and Archer throughout the period it was perpetrating the $60million fraud from 2014 to 2016. (LIAR!)
Archer wrote to Hunter in September 2011 encouraging him to meet Bevan Cooney, one of the first to be jailed for the scheme, telling his best friend: 'I want to work with them' and 'I want you to meet Chad [another business associate] and Bevan. Our type of guys.'
