The owner of California-based DC Solar, Jeff Carpoff, has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for his role in a billion-dollar Ponzi scheme, the largest criminal fraud scheme ever prosecuted in the Eastern District of California.  Together with his wife Paulette and five other co-conspirators, Carpoff lied to investors about market demand for his company’s mobile solar generator (MSG) units, using false lease contracts and financial statements to back up the lie.  In addition to selling thousands of MSGs that didn’t even exist, the defendants paid prior investors using funds from newer investors, then laundered their ill-gotten gains.  USAO EDCA; Add’l defendant sentencing at USAO EDCA
