"Initially, team leaders like Hill would hold their own small meetings with the shareholders they brought in. In September 2008, conspirators began holding weekly meetings for all shareholders," Ketchmark said. "Hill encouraged her shareholders to attend the meetings, where they could buy additional shares. When shareholders gave Hill cash up to $2,500 in collections - she put the money in an envelope and gave it to a co-conspirator later that night."
Hill - the fifth person in the Petro fraud to plead guilty - faces up to five years in federal prison without parole and a fine of up to $250,000, and she could be required to pay restitution.
