Fraudster opens sanctuary for musiciansmain
The criminal history of Barrett Wissman, co-owner of IMG Artists, is well-known to Slipped Disc readers.
Wissman pleaded guilty in 2009 to defrauding a pension fund of the state of New York. He stayed out of jail by paying a $12 million fine and blowing the whistle on his associates. He got to keep the ranch in Montana
Now, he is trying to whitewash his past by turning the ranch into a summer refuge for artists and musicians, according to a release from his PRs.
Turns out you can fool all of the people all of the time.
