Marty L. Brickey, the former CEO of the Australian developer Interzone, is facing a maximum of 120 years in prison for wire fraud and money laundering. Brickey, 44, was indicted in June on three counts of wire fraud and six counts of money laundering. Each wire fraud charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison, with money laundering carrying a penalty of 10 years.
According to a report in the Springfield News Leader, the documents state that Brickey took more than $14.5 million in Australian currency for funding for games that were never released over a period starting in 2008. Brickey was in charge of Interzone when it closed back in 2010, carrying more than AUD $1.5 million in unpaid taxes and wages. All in all the dots feel very connected in this case.
