Question of the Day
Man who faked death pleads guilty
NOBLESVILLE — An Indianapolis-area money manager who tried to fake his death in a Florida plane crash has pleaded guilty to securities-fraud charges.
Marcus Schrenker entered the plea at a hearing Wednesday in Hamilton Superior Court in Noblesville.
Schrenker is accused of bilking friends, family members and other investors of more than $1 million. He struck a deal with prosecutors in which he agreed to plead guilty to five of 11 counts.
The judge set a sentencing hearing for Oct. 7. Schrenker could face 10 years in prison and be required to pay restitution.
Schrenker was sentenced last year to four years in federal prison for the January 2009 plane crash. Officials say he put his plane on autopilot and bailed out over Alabama to flee personal and financial problems.
